Sixty-four re-hired contact tracers in the province were capacitated by the DILG Antique Provincial Office on boosting contact tracing capacity in the new normal thru a virtual orientation, held on June 22, 2021.
DILG Antique Provincial Director Cherryl Tacda said that the activity is a response to the CT’s need for a capacity development program based on the training needs assessment conducted in February 2021.
She further explained that the activity aims to sustain contact tracing in the LGUs and break the chain of transmission, particularly with the reported entry of the new variant in the country.
The results of the training needs assessment (TNA) tool developed by DILG Region 6 showed that DILG Antique CTs need to be updated with the updates and current trends on Contact Tracing efforts of the government; and conduct capacity development interventions that will improve the level of their confidence in doing their functions and duties.
