Climate Change Health Training for Community Health Workers (2)

6 January, 2024

Good morning, Jennifer

We had a bilingual training program on surveillance for CHWs and Promotores, which was implemented in the Texas-Mexico Border. It was a face-to-face.train-the-trainer modality, comprised of 6 courses, between 4 to 8 hours each. After the program was implemented, the courses were adapted to an online version so the CHWs and Promotores could obtain continuing education from the Texas Department of Health Services (TDHS) . At the moment the online campus is transitioning to another LMS and the courses are undergoing a facelift.

This is the link for the online campus for rural public health preparedness, and feel free to browse, you can use the search word "CHW" on "search record".
