International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW) takes place October 15-21, 2023, and is organized by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC). Infection prevention is more important than ever in the battle against a global pandemic and to prevent healthcare-associated infections and outbreaks. Therefore, this year’s theme is ‘Celebrate the Fundamentals of Infection Prevention’. APIC wants to emphasize the role that individuals can play in the health and safety of their community by showcasing the science behind infection prevention, the importance of countering misinformation, and to inspire the world’s future IPs to join the fight. I’d like to ask you to join us in encouraging healthcare personnel, patients, and families to celebrate the bravery and expertise the infection prevention and control community has shown before, during, and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here are some ideas on how you can help your facility recognize IPs during IIPW:

APIC have lots of resources available for your use so make sure to take advantage. Find their toolkit here.
