Welcome to Mpumalanga Health Policy and Systems Research Learning Platform
This website is part of the VAPAR (Verbal Autopsy with Participatroy Action Research) initiative to connect communities, government policy and planning and researchers to generate, act on and learn from research evidence on key, local priorities. The learning platform supports and assists the public, policy makers, analysts, researchers, evaluators and planners to engage and learn by generating local data of practical relevance.
COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKER TRAINING IN COMMUNITY MOBILIZATION
This manual contains a set of tools that can be used by Community Health Workers (CHWs) who are working in their designated area as part of Ward Based Primary Healthcare Outreach Teams (WBPHCBOTs).
“The manual, from the department’s perspective, particularly at the sub-district level, inspires a great sense of pride about the realisation of the possibility of building capacity for this cadre of emerging health care workers in South Africa. The manual will go a long in providing a practical and a formal tool to guide Community Health Workers through their day to day work with communities.”
