Best Practices for COVID-19 in Primary Healthcare Facilities

Purpose of this document

Based on WHO recommendations, countries have developed guidance documents for COVID-19 care at tertiary and referral hospitals, but there is a lack of clear guidance for maintaining essential services and preventing viral transmission at lower tiers of care. This document addresses issues specific to primary healthcare facilities (PHCs) and aims to guide triage and screening of all patients, infection prevention and control (IPC) measures that must be implemented to avoid transmission of COVID-19 in the PHC, environmental cleaning and waste management specific to COVID-19, and healthcare worker training to ensure implementation in every PHC.
