The National Air Filtration Association was to partner Sept. 8-9 with India’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention for a course on reducing airborne illness.

The course in Delphi, India, was to be produced in collaboration with the Foundation for Medical Research and local governments to education health care workers on ventilation, filtration and other indoor air quality issues.

“NAFA welcomes the opportunity to assist the Center for Disease Control in providing education concerning how air filtration can be used to help control airborne infection,” said association President Harry Allen. “India has one of the world’s highest rates of tuberculosis, but through the use of sound air filtration practices, NAFA hopes to make a positive contribution toward reducing the risk of infection in healthcare facilities in India. Working with the CDC in India also provides NAFA with a platform to further the global reach of our association.”
