Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) is a major challenge for health care systems around the world. There is an important opportunity to reduce avoidable morbidity and mortality through improvements to IPC, including during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The IPC channel hosts general courses designed for all health workers, as well as more advanced courses specific to IPC focal points. The goal is to strengthen health workers' IPC knowledge and advance the IPC focal points’ capacity to implement facility-led IPC efforts. The channel includes courses on COVID-19 preparedness, readiness and response, as well as IPC strategies required to prevent and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 infections in health facilities.
Please visit the COVID-19 national languages channel to access COVID-19 IPC courses in additional languages.
