By now, ICPIC has become an established entity in the field of international Infection Control and Prevention meetings, with an average of 1000 participants from 100+ countries for the prior 3 meetings. As a result, the 4th ICPIC will also offer a unique forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience in the prevention of healthcare-associated infections and control of antimicrobial resistance around the world. Unless (new) emerging infections, posing a public health threat, arise, as it was the case during ICPIC 2015 with Ebola, the prevention and control of antimicrobial resistance remains the foremost global threat confronting all countries alike. Once again, ICPIC will provide the necessary platform to share knowledge and exchange experience with regard to antimicrobial resistance and the prevention of healthcare-associated infections in general.
