USAID-Funded Program Aims To Train Frontline Liberian HCWs In Infection Control, Prevention Skills

USAID’s “IMPACTblog”: Moving Beyond Ebola: Rebuilding Liberia’s Health Care System
Kelly Dale, a senior program coordinator with Jhpiego, writes, “With the ongoing possibility of future Ebola cases, now is the time to build momentum toward a stronger Liberian health system that can stop the disease in its tracks before it turns into another large-scale outbreak. That’s where frontline Liberian health care workers … come into the picture…” Dale discusses a program funded by USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance and led by Jhpiego that “aims to boost the [infection prevention and control (IPC)] skills of more than 3,200 health care workers from hundreds of Liberian health care facilities…” (4/6).
