Association partners

The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) invites you to partner with us to promote the role that we all play in infection prevention.

Help us mark International Infection Prevention Week (IIPW), October 19-25, by being part of our multiyear campaign—themed “Infection Prevention and You”—focusing on engaging everyone in infection prevention—patients, families, and healthcare personnel.

To kick off the campaign, APIC has created a robust website with tips, checklists, and other resources to download and share, including an infographic poster that clearly and simply outlines the steps that patients can take to support infection prevention efforts in healthcare facilities and reduce their risk of infection.

As a partner, we will also provide you with other ready-to-use materials to help you spread the “infection prevention” message, including promotional materials such as:

Last year, partners were invited to attend a free APIC webinar featuring global hand hygiene expert, Prof. Didier Pittet, of the University of Geneva Hospitals.
