Invitation from the ACIPC President


On behalf of the Board of Directors, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to join us for ACIPC 2019 in Perth, Western Australia.

ACIPC 2019 promises a wealth of interest as we tackle the challenges and embrace the opportunities for the future of our profession. Held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, ACIPC 2019 will broker new dimensions and frontiers in education, research and practice in infection prevention and control. And where better to do so than in Perth, the capital city of Western Australia. Set on the banks of the spectacular Swan River and overlooked by Kings Park, which was recently ranked the sixth best park in the world by Trip Advisor, Perth is one of Australia’s fastest growing urban centres.

More information regarding the conference including invited speakers, social events and engagement initiatives will be released via our conference website as planning proceeds. We encourage you to check the website regularly for updates.

We look forward to meeting with you at ACIPC 2019.

President, Australasian College for Infection Prevention and Control
