Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to join us at the 6th International Congress of Infection Control Association (Singapore), which will be held on the 1st to 3rd Feb 2018. Our theme for this meeting is “Infection Prevention without borders”.

This meeting has grown since its inception into one of the most successful infection prevention meetings in the region. It has been an opportunity for those who are interested in better and safer care for our patients to gather and learn more from both international experts and each other about the latest developments in the field.  More importantly, this is a great occasion for meeting new and old friends, to build networks, for collaboration, research and partnership across the Singapore and beyond the region. We look forward to meeting you at what will be a very exciting congress.
