ICAP in Sierra Leone is working tirelessly to train health workers on the COVID front lines as the nation prepares its health system to respond to the pandemic, under the leadership of the country’s Ministry of Health and Sanitation. Although the trainings are still recent, local clinicians are already seeing an impact.
Dr. Mame Toure, country director of ICAP in Sierra Leone, spoke to the importance of the project saying:
“By providing frontline health workers with empowering education, ICAP and Resolve to Save Lives are working together to build a culture of infection prevention control measures across Sierra Leone. These trainings are critical to protecting our health workforce and their patients from COVID-19 infection and lead to a more resilient response to COVID-19 and pandemics to come.”
