MDH HAI Update

Welcome to the MDH (Minnesota Department of Health) HAI (Healthcare Associated Infection) Update! In late 2009 MDH received funding through the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to build sustainable state infrastructure and measure progress toward HAI prevention.  There is so much happening in HAI prevention in Minnesota. We hope this update will help our partners stay informed about current HAI activities.
