ARIC is proud to be affiliated with several societies that support and promote the work done in our field.
The International Conference for Prevention and Infection Control (ICPIC) is a unique platform to foster knowledge sharing and exchange experiences for the prevention of healthcare-associated infection and the control of antimicrobial resistance among countries around the world. To achieve this aim and to ensure a global dialogue, ICPIC encourages and facilitates the attendance of many fellows from nations with limited resources, notably from the African region.
The Asia Pacific Society of Infection Control (APSIC) was established in 1998 and is a multi-national, voluntary organization dedicated to the advancement of infection control practice to reduce hospital associated infections, monitor and control emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and improved patient outcomes. APSIC aims to bring together multidisciplinary infection control professionals in the region to share their knowledge, experience, skills, and quality improvement and research findings by facilitating the exchange of information through training courses, seminars, congresses and conferences in the Asia Pacific region.
The Infection Control Africa Network (ICAN) is an organization that promotes collaboration between individuals and institutions working in the field of infection control in Africa. The network currently has over 300 members from 24 African countries, and is led by an enthusiastic board of multi-national leaders in infection control. The vision of ICAN is an African continent where safe patient care is ensured for all through the implementation of strong infection control programs. ICAN has several active working groups dedicated to reducing healthcare associated infection and promoting antimicrobial stewardship on the continent, including education, communication, surveillance and community participation committees.
