Health care workers play a critical role in health service delivery, patient care and the effective implementation of infection prevention and control (IPC) measures. This project will assess the ongoing burden of SARS-CoV-2 infection among health care workers and seek to improve related IPC recommendations in health care facilities where there are established partnerships in Burkina Faso and Uzbekistan. Sero-epidemiological surveys will be conducted to determine the seroprevalence of SARS-CoV-2 infection as well as associated factors. Partner site assessment visits will be conducted to review the IPC recommendations in-place and identify strengths as well as areas for improvements that could be made.
- To determine the burden of SARS-CoV-2 infection among health care workers at facilities in partner countries
- To determine risk factors associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection among tested health care workers
- To assess IPC practices including strengths and areas for improvement as it relates to the effective development of IPC programmes
