Arizona HAI Plan

HAI Prevention Strategies Subcommittee logo

The Arizona HAI plan is intended to support and enhance HAI prevention activities already occurring in the state. The HAI plan is divided into four general areas: development or enhancement of HAI program infrastructure; surveillance, detection, reporting, and response; prevention; and evaluation, oversight, and communication.

This plan reflects current HAI prevention capacity as well as HAI prevention activities ADHS would like to undertake given additional resource availability. This is a planning document and subject to change based on resource allocation, staffing changes, and passage of HAI legislation on the state or federal level.
