In this course, CHWs will be introduced to the Force for Health program and learn about the importance of identifying and working on their own health needs so that they are better equipped to help others.
Core Concepts are:
We are part of a movement…of health literate citizens of the world, making it a better place to live, for one person, family, group and eventually, community at a time.
Be as knowledgable and as healthy as possible yourself, so you are there to help others without the distraction of your own issues
Understand the your issues may not be reflections of what your neighbor or community clients need. Lister, and help them find the resources to solve or improve their issues.
