Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) in Guinea - Case Studies

Post Ebola, Guinea is rebuilding its health system to deliver higher quality care.  Part of their effort includes gaining trust again from the community, something that dwindled during the epidemic.  Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3) is a five year initiative funded by USAID that is working to address these concerns.  HC3 utilizes a social and behavior change communication (SBCC) strategy to improve health behaviors and services in Guinea.

Counting Community Health Workers “Counts”

CONARKY, Guinea – How many community health workers (CHWs) are there? What are community health workers’ tasks? How can we more efficiently integrate CHWs into national health systems?

Global public health leaders widely acknowledge that there are not enough health workers in the world. Tragically, this fact has been further highlighted by current state of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. With over 9,000 Ebola cases (confirmed, suspected and probable) spread throughout Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, we are seeing a devastatingly high need for frontline health workers.


CHW Central is managed by Initiatives Inc. Site start-up was supported by the USAID Health Care Improvement Project in 2011.
