Vision and mission

Vision: Healthcare without infection
Mission: Create a safer world through prevention of infection


The healthcare system has reached a critical juncture between patient safety, infection prevention, and quality of care. Significant changes in where care is and will be delivered are central issues. These changes represent an unprecedented opportunity for infection preventionists to accelerate progress toward the elimination of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).  

APIC leaders believe this is the right time to commit to an uncompromising vision and organize the association’s mission and goals around a plan to advance toward healthcare without infection.  

We propose to advance our mission to create a safer world through the prevention of infection and embrace this bold direction through patient safety, implementation science, competencies and certification, advocacy, and data standardization.


APIC Strategic Plan 2020

APIC’s history of leading the field toward the elimination of HAIs through its Targeting Zero campaign is further reflected in the APIC Strategic Plan 2020, which serves as an evolution of our movement toward healthcare without infection.
