WiRED just took a giant step towards ramping up its Community Health Information (CHI) Center programs in South America with a new project in Peru. WiRED Director Gary Selnow, Ph.D. recently returned from visiting the small village of Galilea, deep in the Amazon jungle.
In a separate event from the latest e-library installation, WiRED dedicated the Faye F. and Sheldon S. Cohen Community Health Information Center (CHIC) in Pandipieri, Kenya, a community services facility where WiRED has operated for the last 10 years bringing health information to more than a quarter of a million people.
After a year in the making, WiRED proudly announces the latest installation of the Community Health Information (CHI) e-library in Kisumu, Kenya. This interactive, health training program covers 120 topics or modules critical to public health in developing regions—with a special emphasis on HIV/AIDS as that remains critical to our audiences in Africa.
