    The framework topics of the 16th Congress deals with the diverse spectrum of new scientific findings on the various topics regarding hospital hygiene structure, and the prevention and control of antibiotic-resistant pathogens, cleaning, disinfection and sterilisation, and outbreak management in Germany and in Europe.
