West African Infection Prevention and Control to Stop Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI) and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)

Project Objective

To build public health capacity in West Africa in components of infection prevention and control (IPC) programs needed at the national and facility levels to effectively prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR). This project supports countries and healthcare facilities to develop or strengthen IPC programs and AMR action plans and improve IPC practices through a feasible, effective, and acceptable framework within the context of local resources and needs. The project also supports training of FETP residents and graduates on outbreak investigations, HAI/AMR analysis, IPC training, and IPC network evaluation.
