COVID-19 and Community Health Workers

This app was developed during the Ebola crisis to help frontline health workers to keep u to date with the latest data and guidance, as well as keep a check on their own health.

This is a training curriculum developed for Breakthrough ACTION Guyana Regional Support Coordinators to appropriately recruit and train Community Volunteer Facilitators to disseminate messages within their communities.

Community health workers (CHWs) serve as a very important direct link between patients, communities and health services. As trusted on-the-ground support to community members, they therefore expand access to essential healthcare information as well as available treatment and prevention programmes.

This course book provides appropriate, cost-effective, and sustainable targeted learning for the large numbers of emerging community health workers in South Africa.
