Healthworkers are often on the frontlines of infectious diease outbreaks. DRASA works with the government as well as local and international partners to build healthworker capacity in infection prevention and control/outbreak preparedness using hands-on training and simulation exercises.
Our goal is to ensure that healthworkers can quickly identify and contain infectious diseases. Our training helps them protect themselves so they can protect society by preventing the spread of these infectious diseases in communities, across the country, and outside our borders.
DRASA works in communities to educate and drive behavior change to help reduce the spread of infectious diseases. We target vulnerable populations and our programs focus on teaching good personal hygiene and environmental sanitation habits such as hand washing, proper waste disposal, and safe food storage.
From hosting educational sessions and events for community leaders to working with youth to train them as ambassadors for change within their schools and circles of influence, we employ various strategies to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and improve health within communities.
