Dear Friends and Colleagues,

While most countries are slowly containing the virus, we are seeing resurgent cases in some countries easing lockdown measures as well as others which have maintained stringent measures.

Hence, with consideration of the current COVID-19 situation, it is with regret that The 10th International Congress of The Asia Pacific Society of Infection Control (APSIC) 2021 and its associated workshops, due to take place on 4 – 7 March 2021 was postponed.

We intend to convene the congress on 20 – 23 January 2022 at the same congress venue.

We will revise the scientific programme to reflect the importance of COVID-19 and it is likely that we will have a hybrid congress with online as well as on-site symposia. All abstract submissions will be automatically rolled over to APSIC 2022.

Please join us in making this congress a success, which aims to promote the development and advancement of Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) services and research in the region.

I hope you will enjoy the academics; social networking and you will find time to experience the fascinating tourist attractions and savour the famous hawker food during your stay in Singapore.
