Training and Learning Programs for Volunteer Community Health Workers

Johns Hopkins University via Coursera


Volunteer community health workers (CHWs) are a major strategy for increasing access to and coverage of basic health interventions. Our village health worker training course reviews the process of training and continuing education of CHWs as an important component of involving communities in their own health service delivery. Participants will be guided through the steps of planning training and continuing education activities for village volunteers. The course draws on real-life examples from community-directed onchocerciasis control, village health worker programs, community case management efforts, peer educators programs and patent medicine vendor training programs, to name a few.

    Jibril Adamu is taking this course right now, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.

    I have done this course in school. However, I still need to learn more about this because this course is of Paramount to me.

    Some people may find it difficult but it's not to best of my understanding.

    I appreciate the efforts of the organizers.

    Thanks a lot.
