What Are Healthcare Associated Infections?

Welcome to the Healthcare Associated Infections Prevention Initiative. This initiative was developed and funded by the Indiana State Department of Health. It is a collaborative effort with contributions by academic institutions, healthcare organizations, patient advocate organizations, quality experts, and healthcare providers.

The goal of the initiative is to significantly reduce the number of healthcare associated infections throughout healthcare settings in Indiana. A key component is providing caregivers, patients, and their families information about healthcare associated infections.

By increasing knowledge and awareness, we will prevent infections. Thank you for your participation!
