Project Firstline is CDC’s National Training Collaborative for Healthcare Infection Prevention & 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 work day, including during every patient care activity and healthcare interaction. CDC’s Project Firstline is a collaborative of diverse healthcare and public health partners that have come together to make that happen.


Project Firstline Will Reach Healthcare Workers In:

  • Hospitals
  • Outpatient clinics
  • Dialysis centers
  • Nursing homes
