The impact of infectious diseases are global, regardless of how localized an outbreak is. With the advanced speed of travel, the world is a much smaller place today compared to 50 years ago. Due to this, one small antibiotic resistant bacteria can multiply and end up infecting someone halfway around the world in less than 24 hours. The Infection Prevention Strategy works to bring together the best minds globally to fight these issues. By acting locally on the problem, we create an impact globally.

The conference is being co-hosted by the PHC, a student led group of global citizens situated in downtown Toronto. The mission of the PHC is to foster global citizenship with a human rights approach. They strive to empower students, faculty, staff and friends of Ryerson University to take leadership and action in their local and global communities. Their aim is to produce lasting social change, promote optimal health and protect diverse ecosystems around the globe.

At this conference, the main topics to be discussed will be the importance of infection prevention in every field, the peer review process and what it entails, as well as job opportunities in infection prevention (in Canada and globally).
