Appreciating the move, Association of Indian Medical Device Industry forum said, ‘Andhra Pradesh would be the first state in the country to take this move, which will be enforced from the World Hepatitis Day. We applaud the initiative being taken by the government to ensure one injection will be given from one syringe by mandating universal usage of auto-disable syringes in all clinical/therapeutic cases as part of infection prevention with effect from World Hepatitis Day. It also noted that Immunisation injections however account for only 10-15 per cent of all injections. Bulk of injections are used for clinical therapeutic use. Central government should now consider to convert advisories to definitive directives on this issue to all central and state government public health facilities.
