The IFORD Institute for Disease Prevention Engineering

The IFORD Institute Was Established to Bring the World Back from the Precipice of Treatment Resistant Superbacteria and Improve Healthcare Operations Bringing Them in Line with Standard Industrial Practices

IFORD Institute’s Purpose

Is to improve the life-expectancy of antibiotics through the following four efforts:

  • First, to bring full awareness to the public about the dangers of self-created strains of deadly pathogens and what engineering can do remedy these dangers, while educating healthcare professionals in the art and science of disease prevention.
  • To create designs to build and operate new hospitals with standards that the IFORD Institute is promoting using disease prevention engineering techniques. And to provide education and tools to allow engineers and technicians to gain certification as disease prevention professionals.
  • To gather information that was discovered as a result of research by the scientific community, you, and putting it to work by through the application of ingenuity and design to solve HAD’s. This includes sponsoring research projects directed specifically toward the development of information and technology to combat HAD’s.
  • And to inform and lobby international governments to control the use of antibiotics by removing them from animal husbandry and from availability in simple bazaars and shops, and rededicating them for strictly controlled medical purposes.

Introductory Video for the IFord Institute


The IFord Institute is a dedicated patient and staff advocate.

This video describes IFord’s plans and by implication the problems of Healthcare Acquired Disease (HAD) and begins to direct the viewer down a path towards the obvious solutions to the problem of antibiotic resistance in pathogens. The implications of HAD’s seem to be lost on the entire 3 trillion dollar medical business in the USA. What is not lost on healthcare is the idea of making a buck.

Speaker Availability

IFord has delivered lectures on the Disease Prevention Engineering both domestically and internationally to audiences from around the world.

The IFord Institue will provide speakers free of charge to discuss topics related to hospital design and disease prevention. Host will be responsible for travel expenses.

The IFORD Institute for Disease Prevention Engineering January 31, 2017


IFORD’s mission is to to shine a light on the solvable problem of Healthcare Acquired Diseases. Healthcare Acquired Disease (HAD) is the third leading cause of death in the US. This problem represents an industry failure to use available ideas and technologies for the benefit of patients and staff.
