3 September, 2019

Dear Jules

We have a number of training course books on the prevention of infection in health facilities which are not on YouTube but are available on a smart phone friendly learning platform. Another has been used to train health workers in West Africa to manage Ebola cases. All can be viewed on our open source website This may be a useful resource for you.

Best wishes, Prof Dave Woods
