Insights from IDWeek 2012, a special thematic digital issue produced by Infection Control Today magazine, features highlights from select symposia and oral abstracts presented at the inaugural IDWeek event, a joint meeting of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA), the HIV Medicine Association (HIVMA), and the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS).

The meeting convened leading researchers and practitioners from around the world to showcase the latest developments in the field. Sessions presented advances in basic, translational and clinical research in infectious diseases, including HIV infection and healthcare epidemiology, and provided state-of-the-art updates on key issues. With the theme "Advancing Science, Improving Care," IDWeek featured the latest science and bench-to-bedside approaches in prevention, diagnosis, treatment and epidemiology of infectious diseases across the lifespan.
