In Uganda, the ‘core’ of the Health system is the Community Health Promoters (CHPs) programme.
In 2016 Evergreen held the first CHP Level 1 Course ever to be held in the Budwale area. 70 trainees embarked on the course and a very creditable 64 CHPs graduated. The average family in Uganda has six children, and these qualified CHPs are encouraged to share their knowledge with their extended family and immediate neighbours. Even assuming an average of just ten households (a very low estimate) for each CHP to share with would mean an approximate positive impact on six hundred and forty households, roughly 5000 people!
In 2017, Evergreen gave the Budwale CHPs a 12-month Continuing Professional Development course featuring monthly seminars. In 2018, Evergreen is expanding CHPs training and CPD courses across the Wanale Ridge.
Total cost of CPDs is £4270 in 2019
