President Clinton signed the ground-
breaking Needlestick Safety and Preven-
tion Act into law on November 6, 2000.
Ten years later, it is time to assess its
far-reaching impact, identify remaining gaps in sharps
safety technology, and chart a future path that is
global in scale. What will the global sharps safety and
medical device market look like in another ten years?
How will these changes benefit those in the poorest
countries around the world--and the healthcare work-
ers who are most at risk of infection from bloodborne
pathogens?
