education they need and deserve to protect themselves and their patients from infectious disease
threats in healthcare. Project Firstline was created with and for healthcare workers, with the support
of a collaborative of diverse healthcare, public health, and academic partners.
Project Firstline is a national education and training collaborative of more than 75 healthcare, academic,
and public health partners devoted to educating the healthcare workforce about
Project Firstline was developed to address long-standing gaps in infection control knowledge and
practice in healthcare, which were highlighted most recently as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Project Firstline is for ALL healthcare workers, regardless of their role.
Project Firstline delivers critical infection control training, tools, and resources that are grounded
in science and explain the “why” as much as the “what” and the “how” of infection control.
Project Firstline materials were made for all healthcare workers in the United States.
Project Firstline offers a variety of infection control educational resources, from videos and infographics
to training toolkits and social media posts, which are designed to meet the diverse needs and learning
preferences of the healthcare workforce in the United States
