After 4 years of trips to the mountains , we are ready to launch our Community Health Program. We have assessed the children of the school and developed friendships with our teachers and community leaders. On April 22, 2016 We will be traveling to the mountains to meet with our village health worker volunteers and begin the training program.
The training will consist of 5 sessions :
session one - Becoming A Village Healthcare Worker, Incorporating traditional remedies with western medicine
session two- How to examine and care for a sick person
session three - Antibiotics and how to dose and dispense medication
session four- Nutrition and health , how to eat well in poverty, identifying a malnourished child
session five - Diseases in children
12 Volunteers will begin the training
