Our October 1% will be used to recruit six Living Goods Community Health Workers in areas where the need is the greatest.
Armed with a smart phone they go door-to-door providing health education, diagnosis, medicine and products. This model is saving and improving the lives of mothers and children and offering respectable income opportunities for people within established communities.
They’ll be trained with the ministry of health iCCM curriculum as well as pregnancy and newborn care, nutrition, WASH, products and business skills. They’ll be equipped with a smartphone and app to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses on site register and track pregnancies and retain patients. 4,800 people will be reached thanks to these six new recruits alone.
