Community-based health and first aid program (CBHFA) in SARC aims to implement initiatives that focus on raising awareness on the most common key gaps in health sector. SARC managed to activate the program in 23 communities in 8 governorates and formed 23 health committees in each community and trained 349 community volunteers.
On February 09, 2018, SARC held a three-day training workshop titled “Community-based health and first aid in application”. The workshop was facilitated by trainers from the Egyptian Red Crescent and the Canadian Red Cross, and participated by CBHFA coordinator at HQ and 16 CBHFA coordinators and facilitators from Damascus, Rural Damascus, Aleppo, Homs, Hama, Tartous, Latakia and Swaida branches.
This advanced training worksop focused on the most common health problems identified in the communities (hypertension, diabetes, acute respiratory infections, hepatitis A, diarrhea, leishmaniasis, lice and scabies). It also aimed to build the capacity of the participants in step-by-step implementation of CBHFA in the community using PMER (planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting) toolkit in addition to providing feedback and inputs in implementing CBHFA in the communities and linking it with other programs.
