Skin Disease

Description of the Training

This topic provides 16 images of showing issues related to spreading skin diseases such as scabies and ringworm. The cards are used to help prompt participants  to discuss some of the ways that people should keep themselves clean, and protect themselves from getting skin diseases with the objective of understanding that skin  diseases can be prevented by regular washing and avoiding sharing clothes, bedclothes and contact with infected people.

How to use Card Set  4. ‘Skin Disease’ 

This set can be used in three ways:

  1. A participant holds up the card to the audience and describes what she thinks is right or wrong with the image
  2. The images  can be sorted into three groups of good, average and bad practices
  3.  The cards can be used to block the route of a  skin disease by showing a  card depicting the disease and then asking them to select a card which could prevent this disease from Card Set 4.
