Containment of
Covid-19 in Uganda

As part of this project, two healthcare professionals from each district in Uganda were trained in the prevention and containment of Covid-19 together with ECCUganda. Thanks to a train-the-trainer concept, these specialists were and are able to train further healthcare staff in their district. We have supported every district in Uganda nationwide in the fight against and containment of SARS-CoV-2. 268 trainers have been trained, who in turn pass on their knowledge of infection prevention and control to local healthcare professionals in their district.
