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  “Infection Prevention and You” campaign focusing on engaging everyone in infection prevention—patients, families, and healthcare personnel. The 2014 theme of IIPW is antibiotic resistance. 

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. APIC has also created a new infographic about the importance of preserving and appropriately using antibiotics, along with a list of the “Top 5 questions consumers should ask their providers about antibiotics.”

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.

Please email Liz Garman, vice president, Communications at egarman@apic.org to confirm your participation so that we may list you as a partner on this page and post a link to your website.

Thank you for joining APIC as we spread the message about everyone’s role in preventing infection. We hope you will put these new resources to good use and actively promote infection prevention to others via your newsletter and social media channels. Thank you in advance for your support.
