german language

Hygiene stands between an increasing susceptibility to infections and an ever higher cost pressure in healthcare. What are the potential benefits of chemical leasing in this context? Who will benefit if producers are no longer paid for the amount of products they sell, but for establishing and maintaining certain hygiene standards for their customers? We will discuss hygiene management to find solutions for an efficient and sustainable improvement of hygiene standards in practice.
