25th -26th March 2021

5th Annual MarketsandMarkets Infection Control, Sterilization & Decontamination Virtual Conference (GMT)

Based on the survey on 1,000 hospitals in 33 countries, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) estimates that that on any given day, one in 18 patients in a European hospital has healthcare-associated infection (HAIs). Most the countries (26 out of 33) reported the major three types of HAIs: pneumonia and lower respiratory tract infection, surgical site infection and urinary tract infection.

The estimated number of patients in UK acquiring HAIs is approx. 300,000 a year, according to a report by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). It costs the NHS approximately £1 billion a year, and £56 million of this is estimated to be incurred after patients are discharged from hospital. NHS has now adopted no-tolerance policy towards spread of HAIs.

MarketsandMarkets is organizing 5th Annual Infection Control, Sterilization and Decontamination in Healthcare Virtual Conference, scheduled for 25th & 26th March 2021, aiming at providing platform to experts from hospitals, academia, and government institutions discussing the innovations, challenges, and future aspects of infection control, decontamination, and sterilization.
