Village Healthcare Course
The Village Healthcare Course (VHC) is a 12-week intensive course focused on bringing Primary Healthcare to a village context. The first two weeks are focused on the discipleship part of healthcare as well as opening up an opportunity for you to be discipled during this course. The following weeks are full of material on how to properly operate a village aid post and provide care within the scope of a Village Healthcare Worker (VHW).
The calling of a village healthcare worker (VHW) goes far beyond delivering healthcare. They play an integral role in the community by leading meetings, planning health promotion events and, facilitating community fellowship. A responsible VHW also understands the routes of patient referral between health professionals, are able to manage finances and, fill out Health Information System (HIS) reports effectively and efficiently.
