A silent epidemic 

Precise definitions of what constitutes a Health Care-Associated Infection (HCAI) slightly differ from one another, but there is an overall consensus in cataloging what also comes under the name of "nosocomial" or "hospital" infection, as an infection occurring in a patient during the process of care in a hospital or other health care facility which was not present or incubating at the time of admission.

Estimates and exact figures on the incidence of HCAI also vary and are dependent on the rigor with which surveillance schemes are actually implemented by healthcare facilities and national healthcare or healthcare authorities. Be they estimates or exact figures, the numbers reported are significant and speak of a silent and often unreported epidemic affecting millions of patients worldwide which presents a clearly identified unmet need in the area of disinfection practices globally.    

Data on the incidence of HCAI in various regions of the world are available from the international and national organizations listed below:


European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control
U.S. Center for Disease Control 
World Health Organization
