What We Do

Community Health Workers are the first persons consulted by marginalized families for their health-related problems regarding overall health, childcare, and reproduction. They are the vanguards of the government’s effort to fight common and communicable diseases.

To educate these workers, FAMCOHSEF has developed a 9-month Primary Health Care Program that integrates knowledge with proper attitude and behavior.

Some 530 trained health workers have graduated from this program.

A second level program on nutrition and care of children and the elderly will be offered primarily to graduates of FAMCOHSEF’s Primary Health Care Program.

Continuous training and professionalization of these Community Health Workers needs the support and partnership of the public and private sectors.

Our Thrust

All the programs of FAMCOHSEF have a dual approach

VALUES EDUCATION & SKILLS TRAINING

The Values Education portion includes a short discussion on a particular virtue or attitude necessary in the human approach of the Community Health Worker.
Volunteer Mentors follow up on these virtue discussions.
Each trainee is assigned a mentor who encourages the trainee to love her work in the home and in her community.
