    "The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) "Action Plan to Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infections" represents a culmination of several months of research, deliberation, and public comment to identify the key actions needed to achieve and sustain progress in protecting patients from the transmission of serious, and in some cases, deadly infections. In response to the increasing threat of HAIs and national and international concern, the Department has composed a Steering Committee of senior-level representatives from the Offices and Operating Divisions of HHS and conducted a number of in-person meetings and conferences with Federal experts. The Department's Action Plan toward the prevention and elimination of HAIs includes goals toward which the healthcare and public health communities have been moving over the past several years." p 1-2
