aunched in Guinea in August 2016, the second phase of “TWIN 2H” aims to contribute to sustainable reconstruction of health systems’ capacities in the field of Infection Prevention and Control (PCI) and hospital hygiene, in order to find solutions to the challenges we face in the wake of the Ebola outbreak that shook Guinea in 2014 and 2015.
Partner of the project, Solthis organized several training sessions for the 2 hospitals supported by the project in Guinea (Guinée forestière), where 78 health workers were trained: 40 in N’zérékoré and 38 in Guéckédou. Recently, at the regional hospital in N’zérékoré, health workers were trained at a workshop. A session of rapid evaluation of technical services was also conducted by groups of evaluators made up of participants.
At the Guéckédou prefectural hospital, work to improve access to WASH services were also carried out: drinking water supply system as well as toilets of the pediatric department were restored in order to provide better practicing environment for caregivers and care conditions for patients. These measures also contributed to the safety of both patients and healthcare workers.
