WiRED International’s 25th Anniversary Magazine
To mark our milestone anniversary WiRED International is pleased to present an e-magazine
to sum up our work to elevate health in underserved communities globally.
What We Do
Community Health Worker (CHW) Program
Community Health Training
Vaccinator Training Program (VTP)
WiRED’s CHW Program is the latest addition to our health education courses. It provides a three-week training program followed by ongoing continuing health education activities. Like all WiRED’s material, the curriculum is free. Learn more here.
WiRED makes available hundreds of evidence-based health training modules designed for medical personnel as well as people who are not medical professionals. The aim of these programs is to strengthen community illness prevention and enable people to participate in their own health care. Learn more here.
Train vaccinators today to administer vaccines that arrive tomorrow.
Effective COVID-19 vaccines are now being released, and soon they will reach underserved regions. But, where will low-resource countries find enough trained people to vaccinate the population? WiRED’s Vaccinator Training Program (VTP) — based on WHO vaccination guidelines — trains people at the local level. Learn how here.
WiRED’s partnerships are central to the successful distribution of our materials. WiRED develops the health modules and training programs, supplies the hardware, software and teacher training, and then works with our partners who take these resources the last mile.
What We’ve Done
During the past two decades, WiRED has delivered innovative health education solutions to low-resource communities throughout the world. We were the first to provide Internet connections in war-ravaged towns throughout the former Yugoslavia; to offer IT-based training programs to Iraqi doctors, to bring computer-based, HIV/AIDS training to East Africa during the height of the crisis; and to present Ebola training to communities in West Africa during the outbreak. Click History to learn more about WiRED’s firsts and accomplishments.
These narratives and the timeline will guide you through WiRED’s 20+ year history
from our beginnings on the ground in the war-torn former Yugoslavia
to our training programs today that are accessible anywhere anytime.
Health Learning Center
WiRED creates and releases modules designed to benefit public health and to reflect a full scope and depth of coverage of key health topics. We upgrade modules as needed to keep pace with medical advances. New module topics are often suggested by doctors and other health professionals to be of concern within the low-service communities they serve.
WiRED’s special series allow users to gain comprehensive knowledge on a given subject. Our series include packages on Mother and Child Health, Infectious Diseases, HIV/AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes, Echocardiology and more. Also, we bundle modules into series in foreign languages such as Spanish and Armenian.
ENTIRE HEALTH LEARNING LIBRARY
Our e-library allows physicians and nurses, community health workers and general audiences to address the prevention and treatment of both infectious and noncommunicable diseases in underserved regions. WiRED’s 400+ health modules are available free of charge by anyone anywhere for copying and download onto computers, flash drives and other portable storage media.
You can download all 400+ of WiRED’s health modules through WiRED’s Health Module Access Program (HealthMAP) by clicking here.
