A training for 42 barangay health workers (BHWs) and barangay nutrition scholars (BNS) of Bogo City was conducted last October 20, 2020 in the Bogo City Sports Complex.
The training is part of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) ReachHealth Project administered by the RTI International to provide technical assistance to the Local Government Units (LGUs) of Bogo City, Tabuelan, San Remigio and Medellin, to implement various capacity-building activities to support community-based COVID-19 response to delay, contain the transmission of COVID-19, and mitigate the effects of the pandemic in their localities.
The training was organized by the Visayas Primary Healthcare Services, Inc. (VPHCS) which implements the COVID-19 response project.
VPHCS staff member Lucila Carreon discussed about infection prevention and control (IPC) and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), followed by gender-based violence (GBV) by Julie Ann Libato, VPHCS resource person.
The VPHCS coordinated with the Bogo City Health Office and the office of the vice-mayor to organize the activity.
