 21/5000 ICPIC 2019 Conference

The world's largest conference dedicated to infection prevention and control takes place from September 10th to 13th, 2019 in Geneva.

This fifth edition of ICPIC is the world's only forum on infection prevention and antimicrobial resistance control issues. Despite progress in infection control and prevention, antimicrobial resistance remains a threat to all countries of the world. The need to share knowledge and experiences remains unchanged. ICPIC is the ideal platform, an opportunity for meetings and exchanges for professionals in the prevention and control of infection. 

ICPIC wishes to include patients in the conversation, who are therefore invited to attend this new edition.
