Infection Prevention & Control of Covid-19 in Uganda

Projekt start:             January 2021

Projekt duration:       1 year

Projekt location:        Uganda (nationwide)



Implementing a nationwide training program for healthcare workers in Covid-19 infection prevention and control (IPC).



As part of this project, together with our partner ECCUganda and the Ugandan Ministry of Health, two medical professionals from each district in Uganda are educated to become Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) trainers. These specialists can now conduct courses and train further healthcare workers in their respective districts. Through a Train-the-Trainer concept, we are able to support each district in Uganda in improving healthcare worker safety and in curbing the spread of SARS-CoV-2. The goal is to train a total of 268 participants, who will then go on to pass on their knowledge on infection prevention and control to local medical professionals in their respective district.
