Infection Prevention and Control Champions

The National Association of County City Health Officials 1

Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) describes a set of practices which aim to prevent the spread of infections, including healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and emerging infectious diseases (such as COVID-19) in healthcare facilities and other congregate settings. IPC includes hand hygiene, use of personal protective equipment, safe injection practices, and proper environmental cleaning.

NACCHO's IPC Champion recognition aims to highlight the IPC achievements of local health departments and honor the staff leading this work. NACCHO IPC Champions are respected individuals working in local public health who are advancing infection prevention and control capacity, activities, guidelines, and engagement.
