Their journey began with a trip by the Infection Control Practitioner (ICP), Loyce Khungi at the Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH) in Nairobi, Kenya coming to Toronto who had registered for the in-class Centennial introductory, IPAC course. As faculty within the course, the Nursing Administrator of AKUH, requested Zahir to “watch over” Loyce. This created a relationship with the hospital and a request for IPAC support in 2012. The purpose of the trip was to work with the IPAC Department to ensure they would be ready an Accreditation Survey by the Joint Commission.
