CHWs (2) Dissemination and Dialogue: Community-based health care in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic

21 May, 2020

The CH CoP will host a webinar in next two weeks (excepted date: probably June 3) to react to the global guidance on community based health care in Covid context from WHO/UNICEF/IFRC [https://www.unicef.org/media/68811/file/Guidance-Community-based-Health-....

We collectively need to think about how this needs to be adapted for uptake in countries. Apart from dissemination of the guidance, we want to initiate a dialogue to understand challenges and also some success stories that are emerging. We'd like to hear from the CH CoP members and community health practitioners about how community based healthcare is been supported during Covid? This can include both Covid services and essential non Covid services.

Please take two minutes to fill this survey [https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdSvrXYwvM2fId7Zuw6OeepQKVq1hGx... so that we can highlight some of the stories in the webinar.

Please share this with your colleagues (especially any one in a Ministry of Health post) to participate in this quick survey, and to share these guidelines and encourage participation in the forthcoming webinar.

Soon we will share the details of the webinar and the registration process.

best,

Sanghita
