LSHTM COVID-19 Public Engagement Grant
We have been one of the recipients of the “COVID-19 Public Engagement Grant” of the London School of Hygene and Tropical Medicine for our Kodhi Kodhi Project!
“COVID-19 is not just about COVID-19. In fact, COVID-19 has an impact that goes beyond the disease it causes, jeopardising access to fundamental health services, with a long-term impact especially for the most vulnerable populations. For instance, pregnant women do not stop giving birth, so it is essential to continue to provide maternal services like the ones provided by Community Health Workers (CHWs) running the Mama & Family Project in six rural villages in Uganda. However, during this pandemic CHWs could also play a very central role in reducing the spread of the virus. Therefore, the Kodhi Kodhi Project will not only provide the necessary tools for the CHWs to continue working safely but will empower them to engage their entire communities in maintaining hygiene behaviours, such as hand washing. CHWs are trusted and well known for their health promotion activities, therefore their voices could trigger a long-lasting behavioural change that will have a positive outcome beyond COVID-19.”
