Piloting an eLearning Course for Community Health Worker Training

Read how IntraHealth International's Ingobyi project piloted an eLearning scheme using smartphones in two priority districts with a goal of scaling it nationwide to replace the current didactic refresher trainings. It took approximately 20 months to prepare for and pilot the eLearning courses for community health workers.

The eLearning tools are accessible to CHWs from their areas of work and create a more independent level of learning as they use these resources in parallel with mentorship programs and supportive supervision. Establishing eLearning at the community level is a long-term strategy to ensure that the community health program is cost-effective and sustainable.
