The Afghan Medical Professionals Association of America (AMPAA) with cooperation from the Global Watch Group (GWG) conducted a 12-module specialty training to physicians and healthcare workers in Afghanistan. Since the beginning of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic, AMPAA recruited volunteer US-based physicians, particularly from hospitals and states at the forefront of the combat against COVID-19 in the US, to deliver online training to Afghan physicians and healthcare personnel via Zoom. During each session, the presenters focused on topics relevant to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of COVID-19. Special emphasis was placed on the proper use of masks and personal protective equipment (PPE) to reduce the risk of infection among medical professionals and patients. AMPAA will continue to provide training and updates on COVID-19.
