Get Back to Basics

KyIP Training Center has partnered with Project Firstline to prepare and train frontline healthcare and public health workers on the basics of infection prevention and control to protect themselves, their patients, and their communities from infectious diseases. This involves providing training, guidance, and educational materials on topics like proper personal protective equipment (PPE) usage, hand hygiene, infection control protocols, and the science behind how infectious diseases spread.

The goal of Project Firstline is to empower healthcare workers to protect themselves, their colleagues, and their patients effectively, thereby reducing the risk of transmission and maintaining a safer healthcare environment during the ongoing pandemic and future infectious disease outbreaks.
