Hygiene Promotion Training of Trainers – Planning for CHW training

Hygiene Promotion Training of Trainers (ToT) in three counties has been carried out. 70 Public Health Officers,

Water Officers and WASH NGO staff who participated in the courses have increased capacity to conduct Hygiene Promotion Community Health Worker training in their respective districts.

The training had a strong participatory focus. All who attended were able to draw on the experience of each other, discussing and sharing ideas on hygiene promotion. As one of the expect outcomes of the course, plans are now currently being finalised to conduct emergency hygiene promotion training for community health workers.

The ongoing training is expected to target over 2,500 Community Health Workers potentially being able to provide hygiene promotion support to over 500,000 people from communities that are known ‘cholera hot spot’ areas.
