Project Firstline is a collaborative effort, led by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to unite diverse health care and public health experts to provide IPC training to the nation’s health care workforce. ANA is partnering with the CDC on this initiative.
The goal is to prepare front-line health care and public health professionals to protect themselves, their patients, and their communities from infectious disease threats such as COVID-19. An educated workforce is a powerful weapon to prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAI), including those caused by antibiotic-resistant pathogens.
