Infection prevention and control play a significant part in containing the spread of disease.

Understanding Infection Prevention and Control is a comprehensive compendium of IPC processes that can be applied to all countries. The text embraces the recent developments and recommendations in IPC from international authorities, such as the World Health Organization. It is an ideal study and teaching tool and will serve as a reference book for healthcare systems planners who wish to understand IPC and strengthen systems.
