Problem Statement (Describe the problem that the project will solve):
General IPC issue:
Infection prevention and control (IPC) at non-Ebola care facilities is a critical component to prevent EVD transmission within the health facilities. Health facilities need to be prepared to be able to screen, triage, and safely isolate suspected patients and to be able to care for non-EVD patients using standard universal precautions. Quality IPC practices are dependent upon the availability of safe and sufficient water at the health facility, quality sanitation, and waste management infrastructure.
