EUCIC national committees

Each National Committee consist of 5–10 experts suggested by relevant
national societies within the fields of clinical microbiology, infectious diseases, public health, hospital hygiene and infection control. Major goals of the National Committee are to provide the Advisory Board with relevant networks within the countries, help in defining and overcoming major limits in local implementation and feasibility of IC guidance, and liaise closely with other relevant national infection control committees.

The information below will be updated as new committees are appointed.
