May 22nd, 2020Critical Protective Equipment for Frontline Health Workers in Guatemala
In April 2020, the Ministry of Health in Guatemala was ramping up its response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and asked TulaHealth and its local partner - TulaSalud - to develop a distance education course for frontline health workers. A few weeks later in early May, we successfully launched a two-week Microtraining for COVID-19 Prevention, Control, and Management course for rural frontline health workers. Our technical team optimized the digital health system to rapidly send course content directly to frontline health workers’ smartphones via the 'WhatsApp' mobile application, minimizing face-to-face contact. Course materials, including all presentations and multimedia in Spanish, were made available online to anyone in the world.
