OUR MISSION

The World Surgical Infection Society is bridging the gaps between safe surgery and infection prevention and control programs, with a focus on surgical infection reduction safety where the need is greatest.

WSIS is a global entity and community. We connect globally to achieve our vision in preventing surgical site infections. We want to build on this unique stand point during these difficult SARS-CoV-2 times and use our strengths to reach out and continue to ensure no patient is neglected and patient and health worker safety will always be a priority. We support WHO evidence and recommendations and will continue to promote best practices for surgical areas and beyond.

SARS-CoV-2 RESPONSE 

 “Although the idea that an SSI is just an SSI is prevalent, it is now well known that the cost of an SSI in
terms of mortality, morbidity, health-care costs, and loss of productivity
is enormous.”
