The COVID-19 virus is still posing a serious threat to the health of many individuals, particularly the vulnerable ones. As cases continue to rise, with over 7,000 new cases recorded in the Philippines as of this writing, it is critical to learn how to properly manage, screen, and prevent the infection.
Under the Saving the Lives of Healthcare Workers in the Philippines project, in partnership with Project HOPE which seeks to train 5,000 healthcare workers on effectively addressing the COVID-19 virus, a COVID-19 Management Training of Trainers was organized and attended by about 916 participants from the Philippine Obstetrical and Gynecological Society. Running from April 26-28, the training covered several topics on effective COVID-19 Management such as Infection Prevention and Control (IPC), Screening and Triage, and among others.
After the conclusion of the training, a certificate of appreciation was given to Francis Macatulad, ASSIST Director of Projects and Strategy for his support in becoming a partner for the 3-day training. Moving forward, Certified Master Trainers are now welcome to roll out the training to their own communities and health facilities and spread the knowledge on effective COVID-19 management.
