Nosocomial infections are an important cause of preventable morbidity and mortality. This paper highlights some of the serious but avoidable aspects of this largely ignored but vital issue of nosocomial infections in public sector hospitals of Pakistan. This paper also aims to alert the health policy makers, medical staff, microbiologists and other experts to consider more clearly the serious threat of nosocomial infections. It may help Pakistan Ministry of Health to become actively involved in the development of a structured and coherent approach to the problem. (Rawal Med J 2006;31:81-84)
