This video tells the compelling story of community health workers (CHWs) who provide a critical link between the medical community and populations in need of clinical services and disease prevention. The film, shot in Kisumu, Kenya, shows why and how CHWs are trained and how they save lives in their communities.
WiRED International has released a rigorous and comprehensive, World Health Organization-compliant curriculum to train CHWs around the globe. It uses computer-based modules, taught in real-time by physicians and nurses. The 140-hour course covers health basics, patient assessment, clinical issues, health teaching and surveillance. CHWs enroll in WiRED’s continuing health education program to remain current, increase their skills and retain their credentials.
