The socio-political crisis in the English speaking part of Cameroon has led to internal displacement of persons; and untold suffering and poverty (UNHRC,2019). The sudden onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has met war-torn unprepared communities. It is a huge threat considering, that they face serious challenges observing preventive measures and are misguided by false information and myths.
This project focuses on empowering and using Community Health Workers to effectively sensitize these vulnerable population on COVID-19 prevention, debunk misinformation and myths related to COVID-19 and support the community to effectively prevent the pandemic with priority given to the most vulnerable groups (women, children and people living with disabilities).
This approach will increase community resilience in the fight against COVID-19; and create an overall heightened awareness on the dangers of COVID-19 and importance of inclusive community prevention approach.
To ensure efficiency, we will be training a limited number of field volunteers on Community Infection Prevention and Control with Focus on COVID-19 as need arises. To be eligible, one must agree to volunteer with Rural Doctors over a period of 2-3 months to train Community Health Workers in rural areas affected by the socio-political crisis .
All short listed applicants will pay a non-refundable fee of 10,000 FCFA to participate in complete 2 days training and obtain certificate of participation. Following your period of volunteerism, you will be given an attestation of service.
