CHC Training Hub in Rwanda

Africa AHEAD is now launching monthly training courses for  those applying as individuals as well as group workshops for  NGO staff who need training in the CHC Model.

Training Modules are  designed to strengthen individuals and organisations currently engaged in or wanting to  implement the CBEHPP or CHC both in Rwanda and in other developing countries. The training modules are appropriate for both Government and NGO employees as a group or individuals who want to strengthen their skills in participatory methodologies for working with communities in health promotion.

Ideal trainees include, but are not limited to environmental health personnel, social workers, teachers  in primary & secondary schools, nurses and social workers. Whilst no prior qualification is necessary to join this training, experience with development is advantageous. The training is also useful for domestic and international students wanting to augment developmental studies  with practical field experience as an intern.
