Half of the yearly administered 16 billions injections are considered unsafe, particularly on the practices in the developing countries (WHO Injection Safety, Quality of Immunization Services, August 28, 1998). The habit to reuse the injection devices for multiple injection administrations have caused paramount cross infection risk to the society for infectious diseases such as Hepatitis B or C or HIV. As a result, WHO has mandated all injection devices for immunization programs worldwide must use Auto Disable Syringes to be bundled with Safety Disposal Boxes.
