45 Community Health Workers have been awarded with Certificates and Equipment

Part of SHOKHI project’s activities, the BWHC provided six month-long training with a view to develop Community Health Worker (CHW) and a number of 45 ‘Change Makers’ have been trained and turned into CHW in 2016. The objective to develop health workers was that they (health workers) could support the community after the phase out of SHOKHI in common health problems usually faced by the urban slum dwellers. Whenever a community member calls a health Worker she could check/acess the health status instantly and could advice them and even could refer them to the nearby best possible low cost service centers for the effective management of that health issue. After successful completion of this training program, an informal “Certificate giving Ceremony” was held at BWHC Office on 22nd December, 2016. Honorable Treasurer of BWHC Executive Committee was present while awarding certificates among the CHWs. It needs to be noted that these CHWs were trained both theoretically and practically under the direct supervision and guidance of SHOKHI project key staff members’ e.g. the Project Manager, Paramedics etc. The training course curriculum was designed and included the below areas:

  1. Common Health Problems;
  2. General health Check-up;
  3. Measuring of Blood Pressure;
  4. ARI and its Management;
  5. Hypo and Hyperthermia, Causes and Management;
  6. Pneumonia and its Management;
  7. Diarrhoea: Danger signs and Management;
  8. ANC & PNC;
  9. Contraceptives: Types, eligibility and importance;
  10. RTI/STI: Sign, Symptoms and Importance of Treatment;
