Community Health Academy

“Join us to recruit the largest army of community health workers the world has ever known, by creating the Community Health Academy, a global platform to train, empower, and connect.”

About

The Community Health Academy aims to reinvent the education of community health workers – and the leaders who support them – for the digital age.

Our vision is global: empower hundreds of thousands of community health workers to serve the hundreds of millions of people around the world who lack access to healthcare.

Community Health Academy will:

  • Provide opportunities for members of the community health field to improve upon their critical, life-saving skills through continuing professional and medical education opportunities.
  • Mobilize the very best digital education resources for community health workers and their instructors.
  • Support policy-makers and program designers in countries looking to launch or improve their community health worker programs.
  • Advocate for governments to make community health workers a cornerstone of their healthcare plans.
  • Convene the Community Health Expert Network, a global community of experts who can share best practices and tools to strengthen community health worker programs worldwide.

No one should die because they live too far from a doctor

Illness is universal, access to care is not. It’s time for us to go as far as it takes to change this condition together.
