Webinar: Ensuring the Delivery of Essential Health Services during the COVID-19 Pandemic: A WASH and Infection Prevention Response Across Five Countries
Published on June 6, 2022
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic shocked health systems, demanding the urgent identification and prioritization of health care facility needs to keep essential health services safe and accessible for mothers, children, and communities around the world.
Beginning in August 2020, USAID’s MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership provided rapid technical and capacity development assistance to local health networks in Bangladesh, Ghana, India, Sierra Leone, and Uganda. Improved facility readiness in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and infection prevention and control (IPC) helped to ensure the continued delivery of essential reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health services.
Please join us for this virtual event on June 8th to learn about and discuss successes, challenges, and recommendations from this work to inform future WASH and IPC efforts in health care facilities and quality improvement programming. Presenters will highlight MOMENTUM’s use of virtual capacity strengthening processes and tools, open-source digital data collection platforms, and local partnerships.
