The Collaborative for the Advancement of Infection Prevention and Control (CAIPC) provides leadership and strategic direction to drive progressive, high quality, evidence informed infection prevention and control education, practice, research, and consultancy in low- and middle-income settings. We provide our expertise via consultancies and partnerships with government, education providers and not for profit organisations. The work undertaken by CAIPC is based on the premise that collaboration, co-creation, and capacity building provide the best foundations for improving healthcare service delivery and health outcomes for people living in low- and middle-income settings.
Working together through ongoing partnership is the key to identifying and implementing real solutions for real problems.
The principles of infection prevention and control are always the same, it is the context that isn’t. We co-create guidelines, action plans, and resources with our partners.

Infection prevention and control programme evaluation
The purpose of this evaluation is to provide a review of healthcare infection prevention and control (IPC) activities in a given healthcare facility. It does not, however, consider the risk of individual patients or specific cases. It is intended as an instrument to provide assessment of the status of the infection prevention and control programme (IPCP).
CAIPC is a collaboration of infection prevention and control expertise from Griffith University, University of the Sunshine Coast, and James Cook University. Our work has seen us engage with the World Health Organization, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Secretariat of the Pacific Communities, Asian Development Bank.
