Neighborhood Health Committees are the lowest level of the Zambian health system. A step below the clinics, NHCs have the mandate of supervising the Community Health Workers and other community-based volunteers. They are also responsible for identifying and nominating community members to serve as CHWs.
One of the most frustrating things about malaria is the preventable suffering it imposes on families. The death of a child or a parent, the loss of work, or economic stability can be devastating.
The trainings of Community Health Workers (CHWs) Copperbelt Malaria Elimination Phase 2 project in integrated Community Case Community (iCCM) were concluded towards the end of December 2021
As we reflect on our wins and challenges for the year ending, we are very proud of what we have achieved this year despite the global challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) for Community Health Worker (CHW) trainings started in May, 2021 from Mufulira District which trained 387 CHWs by July 2021.
As a Rotaractor, this has been an amazing experience for me and I have gained knowledge on how to deal with malaria at the community level.
Rotaract to me is a Lifestyle. It’s an opportunity to fulfill the things I’m passionate about; community service, social interactions, capacity building, and adventure!
