This paper presents the results of a study using trained CHWs to compare in-person auditory brainstem response (ABR). The intervention linked CHWs to a tele-medicine approach in a community-based pediatric hearing screening program; it concludes that a tele-medicine approach is viable.
In this article, a cost effectiveness analysis is used to compare outpatient facility–based treatment of severe acute malnutrition with one delivered by community health workers in rural Pakistan. The study found that facility based treatment was only slightly more cost-effective than the alternative.
The findings presented in this article assess the practicality of training CHWs to conduct high quality verbal autopsies that can be analyzed to estimate disease burden and mortality in resource-constrained settings.
This article describes the feasibility of developing real-time, village-based health surveillance of an epidemic of Nodding syndrome (NS) using software-programmed smartphones operated by minimally trained lay mHealth reporters in northern Uganda.
