Building back better after COVID19

Webinar - Solutions and support for the mental wellbeing of community health workers on the COVID-19 frontline

Mental Wellbeing of CHWs webinar
Join The George Institute for Global Health and the Thematic Working Group on Community Health Workers (CHWs) of Health Systems Global for a webinar to highlight the urgent need for CHW-led, context-appropriate, scalable solutions and support for the mental wellbeing of CHWs working on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic, and for the robust evaluation of interventions.

The webinar will provide a starting point for a global discussion, both during the event and afterwards through the continuing online conversation, in order to share best practice in supporting CHWs, not just during the current pandemic but to build back better for the future.

We look forward to you joining us for this webinar and on social media with @georgeinstitute @H_S_Global and #COVID19andNCDs #CHWMentalWellbeing.
