Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control aims to be a global forum for all those working on the prevention, diagnostic and treatment of health-care associated infections and antimicrobial resistance development in all health-care settings. The journal covers a broad spectrum of 'preeminent practices' and 'best available data' to the 'best interventional and translational research' and innovative (technical) developments in the field of infection control.
Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control believes that a better understanding of the factors contributing to the development and spread of multi-drug resistance pathogens, possibilities to prevent transmission and infections and insight into the difference between developed countries and countries with limited resources are key-factors to find future solutions and overcome the challenges posed by healthcare-associated infections.
Coverage includes: prevention of health-care associated infection in hospitals; infection control and antimicrobial-resistance in high-risk settings (e.g. ICUs); HAI prevention and antimicrobial-resistance in special settings (e.g. long-term care facilities); infection control and antimicrobial-resistance in community settings; and special problems with Infection control and antimicrobial-resistance in resource-limited countries.
Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control was founded in association with the International Consortium for Prevention & Infection Control (ICPIC).
Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control is affiliated with the Asia Pacific Society of Infection Control (APSIC). The purpose of APSIC is to build a network by exchanging information and bringing together regional, national and international research with the ultimate goal of advancing infection control practice in the Asia Pacific region.
