As a Community Healthcare Worker (CHW) you have an important role to provide timely and helpful health information, so that people know how to protect themselves and stay healthy during this time. You are in a great position to build trust with communities and community leaders. Therefore, it is important that you listen to people and respond to their questions, fears and misinformation with fact-checked information that is useful to them. Please visit our partners at Bettercare.co.za for more information on infection and prevention control.
Too often those of you who provide healthcare and support to people in their own homes don’t get the recognition you deserve. We want to thank you and to tell you that we value you so much. Please also tell your families how much we appreciate you.
