General Meeting: Tuesday November 26th: Joel Pidutti – Nyaya Health’s Community Health Workers

Our guest for this evening will be Joel Pidutti of Nyaya Health’s Community Health Workers.

Nyaya Health’s Community Health Workers accompany patients across the emotional, educational, and literal distance to health in irreplaceable ways.

Since its beginnings in 2010, the Community Health Program has grown to become a program made up of 93 women in 9 communities who oversee the health of approximately 22,500 people. Built in formal partnership with the Nepali Government, the Community Health Program enhances the existing Female Community Health Volunteers program in a set of strategic ways by adding female management support, providing performance-based payments, and improving training so women can be effective leaders in referral, follow-up, disease surveillance and educating their communities.

You can see some of their work here.

Everybody is welcome to attend at 6:30 PM in The Office Pub (Adelaide / John St.) on the 2nd floor.
