The Community Health Academy ("Academy") is seeking to reinvent the training of community health workers and the leaders who support them for the digital age. The Academy has established the world's first digital Continuing Education (CE) platform tailored for community health workers and the supervisors, managers and policymakers who support them.
In partnership with governments, the private sector, philanthropic and non-governmental organizations, the Academy enables community health workers to receive the very best in continuing clinical education resources like video lessons on promoting family planning and podcasts on identifying the next outbreaks, and will support countries to develop accreditation programs for community health workers so they don't remain an undervalued group, but become a renowned, empowered profession like nurses and doctors.
In parallel, the Academy will also develop a continuing professional education platform creating a free, open, online continuing professional education platform leveraging massive open online courses and supporting local communities of practice - for policy makers, managers, supervisors working to build stronger systems to support these community health workers.
