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.
I am fortunate to be a COVID-19 survivor and this would not be possible without the care I’ve received from the health care professionals. They are indeed at the front lines in the fight against this disease and I’m so grateful to know that they are there to care for us. Brave, courageous and fearless heroes.
