3 Ways Our Tools and Teams around the World Are Combatting COVID-19

It’s a whole new world for many of us this week.

The US-based staff at IntraHealth International are working from home, conducting all our meetings online, and working fast to adapt our programs to help address the COVID-19 pandemic.

For 40 years, we’ve known that frontline health workers are every country's first line in detecting, reporting, and responding to emerging threats. That's why we train and equip local health workers on disease surveillance and response, infection prevention, occupational safety and health, and much more. That’s why they’re our mission.

Here are three ways our tools and teams around the world are already working to halt the spread of coronavirus and keep health workers safe as they provide care in a crisis.
