Climate Change + Health Training for Community Health Workers

4 January, 2024

Hi all

I was wondering if anyone is aware of any programs that train CHWs in LMICs on the link between climate change and health. In particular, community event-based surveillance for climate related illness and diseases. The WHO has a lot of great training materials on this, has anyone implemented this with CHWs? Examples from the African continent would be particularly useful.

Thank you in advance!
