The effective diagnosis, care, and treatment of infectious diseases require a skilled and motivated health care workforce, and sustainable systems to educate and train those workers. I-TECH uses a systemic approach to build the skills and knowledge of, and foster attitude changes in, health care staff and those who train and educate them.
Health Care Worker Education Systems:
I-TECHs pre-service projects are collaborative undertakings with ministries of health and education. Together with national working groups in each country, I-TECH engages in the reform of educational degree programs and the integration of evidence-based information on infectious diseases into existing courses. I-TECH also leads to faculty development training using innovative teaching methods and classroom management strategies.
