ISID’s Position Paper Series
The ISID Position Paper Series is an exciting new initiative for the Society to highlight key issues in international health and infectious diseases. This series provides an opportunity to discuss timely issues within the field and develop recommendations into manuscripts for publication in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases (IJID). The content for this series is derived from ISID’s 6th Edition Guide to Infection Control in the Healthcare Setting. The first ISID Position Papers were published earlier in 2019 with a focus on managing and preventing vascular catheter-associated infections in low-and-middle-income countries and Hand Hygiene in LMICs.
Our second editorial is now available online and describes the importance of implementing infection prevention and control programs and under-resourced settings.
