  • About This Course

Speaker Dr Rawlance Ndejjo shares experiences that they have had delivering a community cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention programme led by community health workers (CHWs) in 80 villages in two districts in Uganda.

They are also able to refer community members to the health facility for further advise and follow them up. The aim of the programme is to improve knowledge and promote uptake of healthy lifestyle practices for CVD prevention. For the over two years duration of delivering the programme,he highlights the barriers, facilitators and lessons they have learnt from both the CHW and community perspectives.
