Project Team

As part of the CDC-funded National Infection Control Strengthening (NICS) project, experts in infection prevention and control, infectious diseases, emergency preparedness and management from NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue and the Massachusetts General Hospital partnered to develop practical tools to enhance infection prevention and control in healthcare facilities.

In Fiscal Year 2019, CDC awarded cooperative agreement CDC-RFA-CK19-1905, National Infection Control Strengthening. A project funded under this cooperative agreement aimed to develop tools and resources for healthcare facilities to implement infection prevention and control (IPC) when adapting existing spaces or creating new spaces and supporting IPC workflows. In Fiscals Years 2020 and 2021, supplemental funding provided to CDC to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic supported expansion of this work, including partnership with CDC’s Project Firstline.
