Challenge

Healthcare systems are experiencing unprecedented challenges in delivering care. In context of existing and emerging infectious disease prevention/management including COVID-19. The experiences of HCWs during the COVID-19 pandemic and Ebola outbreaks have demonstrated the persistence of inadequate infection prevention and control (IPC) practices and training, understaffing, and inadequate facilities. Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are recognized as a major burden for patients, community

Solution

Infection Prevention and control specialists both private and public units at primary secondary and tertiary care levels are lacking in most low income settings. Training of healthcare professionals is important, to help them know about the evolving best practices in the infection prevention and control management of novel and emerging infectious diseases. This online 2 month part-time program is is co-designed aiming at nurses or midwives who wish to gain knowledge, skills and expertise in IPC

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 300 nurses and midwives empowering them to be able to respond to growing risk of the spread of infectious diseases and increasing resistance to antibiotics that poses a challenge in private and public health care facilities at primary, secondary and tertiary care levels. Making it possible to develop caring, reflective nursing and midwifery practitioners who can seek out and use research-based knowledge to improve patient care.
