Improving IPC in Zimbabwe

As part of a larger project to increase health care worker safety, the Prevent Epidemics team has worked to improve infection prevention and control measures and ensure maintenance of essential health services at the primary health care level at facilities across nine countries. In Zimbabwe, RTSL partnered with the Infection Control Association of Zimbabwe from February 2021-2022 to improve waste management practices and outdoor screening and triage of patients, among other safety mechanisms. Pictured is an upgraded screening area, which formerly lacked shelter or a Veronica Bucket hand-washing station.
