Infection Control



The right practices can stop germs from spreading in healthcare facilities.

Is a Team Effort!

Infection control is most effective when all team members use it consistently.


Infection control is a critical part of safe healthcare delivery in all healthcare settings.

Project Firstline is committed to creating resources that help frontline healthcare workers understand and confidently apply the infection control principles and protocols necessary to protect themselves, their families, and their community.
