'We are happy to announce the launch of our course on Community-based Surveillance for COVID-19

The COVID-19 Digital Classroom is a global initiative to provide high-quality, medically reviewed, multimedia content and training courses for community-based health workers and local communities globally.

Course 6: Community-based Surveillance for COVID-19

The goal of this course is to provide community-based health workers with a comprehensive understanding of community-based surveillance and their role in it.

Community-based surveillance is a rapid and effective system for monitoring your community's health during a public health crisis, such as COVID-19. It is a great way to track events and behaviors that could lead to an increase in COVID-19 cases.

This course will walk you through the community-based surveillance workflow, including your responsibilities as a community-based health worker in supporting the data collection and dissemination of information during this pandemic.

Currently available in English, translations coming very soon

The COVID-19 Digital Classroom is a partnership between the Community Health Academy at Last Mile Health, CORE Group, Medical Aid Films, TechChange, Translators without Borders and UNICEF.
