Nigeria is at high risk of infectious disease outbreaks as its healthworkers largely lack expertise in infection prevention and control and health facilities are not always prepared for outbreaks. In a country of more than 190 million people with a high volume of international travel, this is a recipe for global disaster.
In response, DRASA developed a simulation training program to build capacity among healthworkers and increase levels of outbreak preparedness within health facilities in order to control the spread of infectious diseases and keep people safe.
We train healthworkers from various cadres of the health workforce using a train the trainer/cascade model.
Our hands-on trainings and simulation exercises cover various topics including:
Our goal is to ensure that Nigeria’s healthworkers are well-trained and prepared to deal with infectious diseases as they are often the first line of defense against a potential outbreak or epidemic.
