 About the Society

The World Surgical Infection Society was founded in response to a demonstrated gap in surgical outcomes between patients in high-income and low- and middle-income countries. There have been large scale efforts in the past year to elevate global surgery as a public health agenda. However, these efforts center on increasing access to surgery rather than quality improvement. The World Surgical Infection Society is bridging the gaps between safe surgery and infection prevention and control programs by building strong, lasting bonds between like-minded healthcare workers across the globe who are working on quality improvement in surgical infections and global surgery. 

  About the Journal

The World Journal of Surgical Infection, a publication of World Surgical Infection Society, is a peer-reviewed print and online semi-annual journal. The Journal is a consortium of individuals working on the prevention of surgical infections along with general infection prevention and control practices in all health-care settings. We aim to focus on research from the low- and middle-income country setting. Our goal is to provide access to top translational and interventional research to healthcare workers working in the most challenging and resource-limited settings. The journal's full text is now available online at http://www.worldsurginfect.com. The journal allows free access (Open Access) to its contents and permits authors to self-archive final accepted versions of articles on any OAI-compliant institutional / subject-based repository.

  Scope of the journal

The journal will cover technical and clinical studies related to surgery, global health, medical, implementation science, and infection control. Articles with clinical interest and implications will be given preference.
