The Healthcare Infection Society (HIS) is a charity and membership organisation. Its objectives are to advance knowledge and disseminate information concerning the prevention and control of healthcare associated infections (HCAIs). HIS members are from the medical professions, particularly consultant microbiologists and trainees, as well as nurses and other health professionals with an interest in infection prevention and control.
The Society’s journal, the Journal of Hospital Infection (JHI) is published monthly, and includes original articles that relate to all aspects of infection prevention and control. JHI also publishes articles that relate to national policies or guidelines. The JHI seeks to promote collaboration between the many disciplines in infection control in different countries, resulting in multidisciplinary and international coverage of the latest developments.
