Assocation des Victimes d’Infections Nosocomiales (ADVIN)
ADVIN is a volunteer not-for-profit organisation, which mission consists in increasing awareness and informing the public on the risks of hospital-borne infections. ADVIN will collaborate with professional and political actors in the development of an infection surveillance and prevention program that follows international norms. ADVIN favors preventive methods and works at the necessary lobbying in order to prevent and reduce the effects of infections: long-term illnesses, disability, death. ADVIN supports victims of hospital-borne infections and all other patients by informing them of their rights. It hopes for the development and installment of a structured insurance system for victims.
