New Article Collection: Infection prevention and control in low-resource settings
When the Healthcare Infection Society first launched Infection Prevention in Practice (IPIP), a central aim of the project was to provide a low-cost open access resource offering infection prevention and control (IPC) practitioners from lower- and middle-income countries a venue in which to showcase their research, and to provide a freely-available resource for all IPC practitioners to access and learn from. We are pleased to present our first Article Collection, which showcases important work from the journal addressing IPC challenges in low-resource settings by authors working in these settings. As described in the editorial from Gwendoline Chimhini, Marcelyn Magwenzi and Felicity Fitzgerald which ties our Collection together, these papers reflect the creativity and pragmatism our authors show daily in addressing IPC challenges in their local areas. Colleagues around the world can learn from their innovative approaches in the field. All IPIP Article Collections are freely available to read and download.
