Infection Prevention and Control in Low and Middle Income Countries- The Next Frontier

Congratulations to my VCU colleagues, Dr. Sangeeta Sastry and Nadia Masroor, who lead the recently published  International Journal of Infectious Diseases manuscript on infection prevention and control for low and middle income countries. The manuscript was based on a workshop at last year's 17th International Congress on Infectious Diseases, Hyderabad, India.

The manuscript serves as a loose roadmap for the update of our book, Guide to Infection Control in the Hospital (5th edition), available here as a free download from the International Society for Infectious Diseases

In collaboration with international authors and editors, the updated Guide will have new chapters and an interactive website/smartphone application. The content will also focus on simplified yet effective infection prevention measures for better implementation in low and middle income countries. Portability and practicality are key elements.

We plan to launch the project at the 18th International Congress on Infectious Diseases, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2018).
