Building Rapid Capacity for Frontline Health Workers to Prevent and Manage COVID-19 in African Countries

ICAP at Columbia University collaborated with the Tanzanian Ministry of Health in Tanzania to build the competence and confidence of frontline health care workers  (HCWs)  to safely identify, manage, report, and support people suspected and/or confirmed with COVID-19. ICAP collaborated with the national emergency response unit to build the capacity of frontline HCWs through training to prevent and manage COVID-19 in Tanzania. Through the project, 282 HCWs and 117 master trainers from 67 health facilities across four regions (Mwanza, Kagera, Geita and Mara) were trained. In addition, health care facilities in two regions (Kagera and Geita) were supported with personal protective equipment.
