STOP COVID-19: Essentials for the prevention and control of the virus

About the Organization:

Bioforce is a French leader in training provision, credited by the international humanitarian community. They are a humanitarian organisation that works in the preparation and response to crises relating to conflict, natural catastrophe, and epidemic. They provide solutions to enable vulnerable populations to have access to efficient and high-quality aid through training, accompanying and structuring of humanitarian actors.

About the Course:

In countries where the health systems are already fragile and where confining the population is impossible, mitigating the spread of the virus and protecting front-line staff and volunteers is an absolute priority. This course aims to rapidly provide those frontline actors with the means to inform and protect efficiently and safely.

The objective of this training is to provide epidemic response teams with clear information about the virus and its effects, as well as very practical resources to support community-based interventions.

For whom?

  • This training is intended for the great diversity of public and private actors, who are in contact with local communities, to contribute to the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic. It is not intended for health care workers who provide treatment for infected people.


During this course you will look at:

  • The Covid-19 virus: nature, origin, symptoms, severity, populations at risk.

  • Modes of transmission.

  • Preventive measures (protecting oneself and others) and transmission contexts.

  • Practical and collective prevention measures at community level.

  • Additional information and materials for the implementation of preventive measures.
