Nigeria: Preparedness and response to coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) at primary healthcare and community level - training manual for primary health care workers


The National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA) has developed this training manual in line with its mandate to promote health manpower development for PHC and in recognition of the need for strategic shifts in the PHC system to ensure limited resources provide maximal benefits. Designed for both in class and virtual online training, it is aimed at upskilling frontline PHC workers to screen and triage clients presenting at facilities for COVID-19, and safely refer suspected cases. It will also provide health workers with the skills needed to ensure their safety and that of their clients while providing routine PHC services.
