International Infection Prevention Week 14 - 20 October 2012

5 Oct 2012 | Infection Prevention & Control

International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW) provides a focal point for infection preventionists, healthcare professionals, consumers, organisations, and industry partners to shine a light on infection prevention and its power to save lives.

Imagine a healthcare setting where every healthcare professional performs appropriate hand hygiene before and after touching a patient. Imagine a community where every individual uses proper respiratory etiquette by coughing and sneezing into their elbow during cold season. Imagine the impact on preventing the spread of infection.
