Community Health Workers Curriculum

Our curriculum trains local individuals as community based providers of primary care. It is separated into 10 modules, covering basic first-aid, management of chronic disease, and illness prevention through public health and education. The curriculum is taught over the course of five days in the classroom. This is followed by five days of practical field experience, including one-on-one clinical skills assessment, and site visits to learn the services provided by other local health care organizations.

The Community Health Workers Handbook  is designed to be a training manual as well as a reference book for the cooperadores. The Instructor Handbook and Curriculum is designed to guide instructors in carrying out the training, and includes visual aids and activities that follow the format of the CHW Handbook.

Research Projects – Final Reports

Research Interns work with HHI staff and their own academic advisors on all stages of an independent public health research study. Their findings are utilized by HHI to inform program development, and researchers often have the opportunity to present their work at conferences or to build on it for thesis or dissertation topics. Final reports are available for download below.
