Infection Control is an effort shared by every health care provider, and one that begins on the individual level. Each year, during the third week of October, the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc. (APIC) promotes the practice of infection control through International Infection Control Week. Infection Control Week provides a forum for infection control professional to help their colleagues rededicate themselves to a regimen of effective preventive measures to control the spread of infection. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness and appreciation for the essential services provided by infection control professionals. APIC has developed an International Infection Control Week Resource Kit, Resource List, Promotional Products, and Resource Center for Infection Control professionals.
