An estimated 70 community health workers and voluntary integrators wrapped up two-days of training at the Gala Lounge today where they were engaged in learning the integrated approach to vector management and prevention. Coordinators say it’s a country-wide initiative in equipping these individuals with the right tools and knowledge in vector diseases for their communities. Arlette Shepperd is the Health Education Officer of HECOPAB in the Ministry of Health.

“It’s not just the job of the community health workers or the ministry of health technical people to address vector borne diseases, it is the job of everybody and so we have the participation of the community in terms of their leaders who are the community health workers and the collaborators and we are teaching this new integrated approach to managing preventing really vector borne diseases like malaria and others so that is what we are doing over these two days.  It is an opportunity for us because we have some funding through the EU vector control project and the funds are being managed by PAHO but we are grateful for these resources and because we wanted to do these kinds of training for some time.”


The training moves to Belize City tomorrow.
