About Idaho Project Firstline

Idaho Project Firstline (PFL) is a collaborative of diverse healthcare and public health partners that aims to provide engaging, innovative, and effective infection control training for millions of frontline U.S. healthcare workers as well as community members that want to aid in stopping the spread of infections.

Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are collaborating on providing clear, convenient, and unique training opportunities for the needs of Idahoans. Trainings are free and accessible so that anyone can be empowered with the science and reasoning behind essential infection control practices to protect themselves, their family, their facility, and their community.
