The primary role of community health workers in the fight against coronavirus is twofold:
- To educate the community about coronavirus and the measures they should take to reduce transmission.
- To screen community members for coronavirus infections, and refer suspected cases for testing.
We recommend working through the following documents, which will equip community health care workers with the information and skills required to fulfil their job requirements.
Powerpoint presentations can either be played in video format using the pre-recorded narrations, or they can be used as Powerpoint slides and narrated by a presenter.
Please be aware that information is changing rapidly as this pandemic is progressing, so please make sure that you have the most up to date versions of the training materials. Different countries and regions may have differing guidelines, so please adapt these materials where necessary.
