American medical teams to provide technical assistance to Sierra Leone health sector

These trainings build on long-standing U.S. CDC-Sierra Leone partnership. Strengthening infection prevention and control is crucial in responding to the epidemics and pandemics, and is fundamental to good healthcare.  Effective infection prevention and control protects both patient and healthcare workers from disease.

The aim of the program is to build capacity of healthcare workers to detect, prevent and control infections and help combat antimicrobial resistance. The program has produced 43 graduates from 2 cohorts, currently the 3rd cohort of students is being trained.
