Welcome to Geneva

In 2019, the beautiful Swiss city of Geneva will host ICPIC 2019. It lies at the southern tip of expansive Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) and is surrounded by the Alps and Jura mountains. On a clear day you can even see great views of the Alp’s tallest mountain, Mont Blanc. Home to the headquarters of Europe’s United Nations, the World Health Organisation and the Red Cross, Geneva is known worldwide as being a global hub for diplomacy, health and banking. All in all, the perfect place for a conference on Prevention & Infection Control!
