COVID-19 Capacity Building

This multi-country emergency response training initiative used a combination of distance learning and a “hub and spoke” model to support and train district-level stakeholders to cascade training to primary health care facilities. The training also prepared front-line health care workers for the COVID-19 response. This competency-based and results-driven initiative ensured coverage of key concepts and experiential learning principles to enhance the capacity of hospital-based IPC focal points to comply with IPC standards in selected facilities. The project involved rapid training on COVID-19-related IPC, skills building and mentorship, and supportive supervision for IPC QI projects, as well as the provision of personal protective equipment.

ICAP supported the training of 374 health care workers in 308 facilities in 17 districts with five provinces through this activity.
