All across the world people are having to adjust to this global pandemic. At International HELP, we have focused our efforts on providing more support for our already trained Community Health Workers (CHWs) on the ground. Right now, CHWs are even more essential, as countries with large disparities in the healthcare industry may now be completely overwhelmed. Proper COVID-19 information is sparse, and getting care from a hospital may not be an option. We train our CHW’s to help with disease prevention and to treat respiratory and fever symptoms.
For people in the communities where we work who contract COVID-19 or have other illnesses during this time, CHW’s guidance may be the only option and prove to be life-saving.
