Hospital Infection Society

By | From the Collections

You may think that hospital infections like MRSA and C. difficile are 21st century phenomena, but this is not the case. The Hospital Infection Society was set up in 1979 to provide information to those interested in hospital acquired infections. Since then the Society has worked to create and disseminate a body of scientific knowledge about the prevention and control of hospital and other healthcare associated infections through actions such as publishing The Journal of Hospital Infection, providing grants and bursaries to support work in the field, and awarding the Diploma in Hospital Infection Control (DipHIC) along with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the Laboratory of HealthCare Associated Infection (LHCAI).

The catalogue of their archives up to 1995, deposited with the Wellcome Library in September of that year, is now available to view online for the first time through the Archives and Manuscripts catalogue
