Community Health Promoters

Community health facilitators are trained healthcare workers who work in communities to promote health and well-being. Their primary goal is to empower communities to take charge of their own health and improve their overall quality of life through creating awareness, providing non-technical advisory services, and collecting quantitative/qualitative data on the communities they serve.

Their primary roles are to:

  • Identify health needs: Assess the health needs of the communities in which they work.
  • Educate and raise awareness: Educate community members on health issues and preventative healthcare methods to promote lifestyles.
  • Provide basic health services: Provide basic health services (first aid, health screening, midwifery services and immunizations.

  3. Food distribution: Distribution of fortified foods, supplements, or ready-to-use therapeutic foods (RUTFs).
  4. Monitoring and evaluation: Tracking performance of the NSP program to inform and improve future interventions.
