We Are Project Firstline banner

The National Environmental Health Association is proud to partner with the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) for Project Firstline. Project Firstline is a collaborative of diverse healthcare and public health partners that have come together to provide healthcare facilities foundational knowledge of infection control. To stop the spread of infectious disease threats—including COVID-19—anyone in healthcare, public health, and environmental health needs a foundational knowledge of infection control and must understand and be ready to implement infection control protocols and procedures throughout their workday, including during every patient care activity and healthcare interaction. This collaboration will provide these professionals with infection control training they need to protect the nation from infectious disease threats.

The National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) is a central hub for individuals and institutes who are wanting to improve public health throughout the United States. NNPHI mobilizes more than 40-member public health institutes with over $1.4 billion in annual funding as well as 10 university-based regional training centers and 40 affiliates. They connect more than 8,000 subject matter experts with organizational partners across the nation and serve as a go-to resource for analysis and best practices. The organization also provides important network connections for communities, government agencies, foundations, the health care delivery system, media, and academia.
