Professionals from the Andalusian public health service have developed an innovative infection control programme, unique in Spain, that has managed to reduce the number of infections related to healthcare. Its name is PIRASOA, which has an online platform on which all the hospitals and districts in Andalusia provide information on antibiotic consumption and resistant bacteria, so that they can improve the use of medication and put an end to persistent infections in the hospital area.
