International Infection Prevention Week (Oct. 16th – 22nd)

October 5th, 2011 by Guest Communications

The third week in October is International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW), which commemorates the significance of infection prevention around the globe. President Ronald Reagan first proclaimed this day in 1986, and the world is now celebrating 25 years of bringing greater attention to the importance of infection prevention!

This week professionals are honored for protecting and educating patients as well as healthcare workers and the community. Since infection prevention is present in everyone’s business, this event allows APIC an opportunity to strengthen relationships with other associations that are actively engaged in infection prevention activities both locally and abroad. Opportunities to participate in IIPW include:

  • Showcasing Your Commitment
