Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control (ARIC) is an affiliated journal of ICPIC, and we are writing to give you an update on the journal’s year so far.
Infection control has been on everyone’s minds this year, and there has been a lot of research to read through. ARIC is devoted to overcoming the global spread of antimicrobial resistance and healthcare-associated infections, and provides a platform for cutting-edge preeminent practices and best available data to those working in infection prevention and control.
ICPIC has had a close relationship with ARIC since the journal was first founded five years ago, however we are delighted to announce that with the formalisation of our association,
We’re proud of what we publish at the journal, and we’d like to highlight just some of the articles that we have published over the past few months:
- Risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission by aerosols, the rational use of masks, and protection of healthcare workers from COVID-19
What is the efficacy of surgical masks in preventing SARS-CoV-2 transmission, and what else needs to be done to protect healthcare workers?
- Infection prevention and control research priorities: what do we need to combat healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial resistance? Results of a narrative literature review and survey analysis
How do we identify knowledge gaps in IPC knowledge, and how to we address this critical research needs? Lacotte et al. formulate research priorities to address these needs.
- Antimicrobial use and resistance in food-producing animals and the environment: an African perspective
What is the status of antimicrobial use, resistance and surveillance systems in food animals and the environment across Africa?
