Tork is a proud member of WHO:s POPS initiative
POPS (Private Organizations for Patient safety) was established by WHO in 2012 as an industry collaboration to advance improvements around safer healthcare globally. Members of POPS work collaboratively to minimize healthcare associated infections (HAIs) and save patients’ lives around the world, by improving uptake of WHO recommendations and increasing usage of hand sanitizers in healthcare facilities. Tork has been a proud member of POPS since 2015, and we are dedicated to contributing to safer healthcare around the world.
