Abstract
Recently, hospital infections have been receiving growing importance. Action plans for nosocomial infection control and prevention were originally developed in modern Western countries, including the US. The introduction of this concept in Japan was accelerated from the beginning of the 2000’s. With the legal and financial support from the government, the level of nosocomial infection control is now comparable to that of Western countries. Moreover, the Japanese approach to this field is unique in that it adopted team-based medicine and regional alliances between hospitals. To combat antimicrobial resistance in bacteria, which is a growing problem worldwide, we should utilize our uniquely constructed approach for hospital infection control and prevention. In this review, we provide a general view of the history of and perspectives on hospital infection control and prevention in Japan.
