Infectious Diseases


The Infection Diseases programme focuses on reducing infectious diseases and promoting patient safety for all residents in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine. For instance, attention is being paid to (multi) resistant pathogens such as:

  • the so-called hospital bacteria;
  • hygienic measures;
  • protocols for patient safety.


Examples of this programme's activities are:

  • developing a Euregional network of expertise;
  • research into preventing MRSA (Multi-resistant Staphylococcus aureus pathogen) and other infectious diseases;
  • developing the ‘Patient Safety Quality Seal (Hygiene and Prevention of Infections) for hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation centres.
