PROJECT PAGASA is a joint initiative of the Center for Human Rights and
Humanitarian Studies at the Watson Institute of Brown University, Project
HOPE, and Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation. This COVID-19 training engaged 90 Filipino health workers from across the country and trained them on core competencies, including biology and transmission mechanisms; infection prevention and control; contact tracing; screening and triage; diagnosis and management; stabilization and resuscitation; health facility operations and surge capacity; and risk communication and public health messaging. The training utilized the training-of-trainers model to quickly build a cadre of competent instructors who can teach the material to other health workers.
