Hospital acquired infections are a devastating health crisis that must be resolved.

  • 1 out of 10 Canadian patients acquires an infection from the hospital – that’s 200,000 people each year 
  • 5% die – 10,000 Canadians who acquire infection from a  hospital will die
  • It costs Canadians $4 to $5 billion each year to treat hospital acquired infections

Return on Investment – Save Lives, Save Money

An 80% reduction in HAIs saves 8,000 lives. Reduce acquired infections by 160,000 cases, and we can save $3.2 – $4 billion annually.
