With successful consecutive annual Congress, our 4th Annual Infection Control and Decontamination Congress focuses on case studies and reaching the crux of infections within the hospital premises.

As quoted by House of Commons Library on 14 May 2018 UK healthcare-associated infections cost lives and money. Some 300,000 healthcare-associated infections every year cost the NHS in excess of 1 billion annually.

The increasing use of antibiotics in medicine prescription around the world is constantly causing bacteria to mutate and become resistant to drugs. Also, every surgical instrument has their own set of procedures for cleaning, as stated by their manufacturer.
