This toolkit, available in 10 languages, was developed in collaboration with the Department of Health to inform the public about the regulations for lockdown in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Community health workers (CHWs) serve as a very important direct link between patients, communities and health services. As trusted on-the-ground support to community members, they therefore expand access to essential healthcare information as well as available treatment and prevention programmes.
This course book provides appropriate, cost-effective, and sustainable targeted learning for the large numbers of emerging community health workers in South Africa.
This online book includes these chapters:
- Introduction to COVID-19
- Diagnosing and managing COVID-19
- How to prevent the spread of COVID-19
- Protecting yourself from COVID-19
These chapters have been successfully used as part of the Skills to Care learning programme for the Lukhanji Municipality and Sarah Baartman District Municipality in the Eastern Cape, funded by the Small Projects Foundation.
