An injection is an infusion method of putting fluid into the body. This is done with a syringeand a hollow needle which is pierced through the skin to a sufficient depth for the material to be administered into the body.
An injection follows a parental route of administration. That is, administration via a route other than through the digestive tract. Since the process inherently involves a small puncture wound to the body, fear of needles is a common phobia.

Injections are among the most common health care procedures.
According to study, unsafe injections cause an estimated 1.3 million early deaths each year. About 40% of injections worldwide are administered with unsterilized, reused syringes and needles, and in some countries this proportion is 70%, exposing millions of people to infections.

To improve injection safety, the WHO recommends -

  • Changing the behaviour of health care workers and patients
  • Ensuring the availability of equipment and supplies
  • Managing waste safely and appropriately
  • We provide best guidelines in the field of injection.
