We are working on further videos including CPAP and planning videos for community health workers in Africa on their approach to COVID-19.
The first six multimedia videos are now available, open access, on our learning platform.

We are looking for funding to produce further videos. A major need is for community health workers in Africa to improve their training on recognising infected patients, when to refer them to hospital and how to protect themselves from infection so they can care for patients with COVID-19 and for children and adults with other diseases.
