Project Firstline

The power to stop infections. Together.

Project Firstline is the CDC's National Training Collaborative for Healthcare Infection Prevention and Control. The Philadelphia Department of Public Health has partnered with the CDC in an effort to provide millions of frontline healthcare workers and members of the public health workforce with the infection control training they need to protect themselves, their facilities and their communities from infectious disease threats.

Project Firstline aims to provide every person working in a U.S. healthcare facility a foundational understanding of infection control. To stop the spread of infectious disease threats -- including COVID-19 -- anyone working in a healthcare facility needs a foundational knowledge of infection control and must understand and be ready to implement infection control protocols and procedures throughout their workday, including during every patient care activity and healthcare interaction.
