Health care worker training at scale: Reflections from COVID-19

At the start of the COVID-19
pandemic, Resolve to Save Lives partnered with organizations across 22
countries in Africa to support health care worker training and mentorship in
primary health care facilities. After finding that existing resources were not optimized for
use by health care workers, the team
a self-paced, online course about infection prevention and control measures

that featured realistic case scenarios delivered in short modules. The course,
developed in close collaboration with the African Field Epidemiology Network
and the Nigeria Primary Health Care Development Agency, was piloted in Nigeria
before being expanded to 20 countries. Nearly two-thirds of those who enrolled
completed the course, with an average rating of 9 out of 10.
