International Infection Prevention Week, run by APIC, invites people from all over the globe to come together the third week of October and practice cleanliness for the health and safety of yourself and other.  During this week, health care facilities, schools, and businesses bring awareness to infection prevention to improve patient, client, and student safety.

IIPW started in 2006 and has spread to almost every continent since then. The United States, Great Britain, Australia, South-East Asia, and some countries in the Middle East all participate in the week long, educational event.

IIPW encourages people to wash their hands during this week.  As well as educating the public on using safety precautions when helping others; always use gloves, never reuse needles, only take medications that are diagnosed to you.

Instead of simply raising awareness about these important issues, why not take steps to curb infection rates at the same time? ePromos has a great selection of promotional pill holders. These useful products serve as an effective advertising medium when they are imprinted with your company name and logo as well as a safe way to travel with medication.  If you are looking for a unique gift, why not hand out these medical 3-d tumblers.  They have cool little healthcare related products on the bottom of the glass.  Wherever this cup is being used it is designed to turn heads.  Don’t hesitate, do your part to raise awareness and reduce the prevalence of infectious disease today!
