Health Worker Safety

The Health Worker Safety Pilot Project equips volunteer medical teams with transformational medical products and opportunities for training with access to educational resources.

Americares is committed to advancing health worker safety through the donation of safety-engineered devices as well as HCV rapid diagnostic tests to qualified recipients.

Criteria

We will donate rapid diagnostic tests and safety-engineered devices to be left with your in-country partner, if you:

  • Have assessed needs of your partner facility.
  • Can provide training on their use in addition to your patient care responsibilities.
  • Will administer a test before and after training (see pre and post test under resources). If you select the Word document instead of the web version (both provided), we ask that you email the number of test participants and before and after scores.
  • Can provide an in-country contact at the facility accepting responsibility for the remaining products.
  • Will complete a brief post-trip survey (in addition to trip report) and provide feedback in the future as needed on how to most effectively implement this initiative.

Resources

Here is a short prioritized list of the most essential training materials. Feel free to print them out and take them on your trip to help with training your in-country partner.
