Project Firstline is a partnership between CDC and MDH that aims to provide engaging and effective infection prevention and control training to frontline workers, staff, and members of the public health workforce.
About Project Firstline
CDC launched Project Firstline to deliver comprehensive, transparent, and responsive training and education to the millions of frontline health care workers in the United States. Health care workers need and deserve clear and trustworthy information not only on CDC’s infection control recommendations, but also on the science behind them.
The goal is to be able to understand and confidently apply infection control principles and protocols necessary to protect health care workers, their facility, their family, and their community from infectious disease threats, such as COVID-19.
