Challenge

A big issue in Fiji is developing resources that can be easily accessed by the community health workers, resources need to be created to be strong and withstand the rural community living, workshops need to be interactive and contain material related to the subject. This will be by community health workers to promote health and well being within the community, however, Fiji is also suffering from a major lack of qualified healthcare workers, an issue that needs resolution in order to develop

Solution

A WaSH workshop was created that targeted not only Water, Sanitation & Hygiene but also ways to prevent the common diseases in Fiji (such as Dengue Fever & Leptospirosis) from spreading by following the WaSH principle. The workshops run for approx. one to one & half hours & can be run either individually or in conjunction with other workshops like the Waste Management packages.

Long-Term Impact

Currently, we are creating a series of workshops on preventative health. The Ministry of Health in Fiji is aiming for their Community Health Workers to prevent disease rather than cure it, allowing for communities to become more sustainable and less-prone to disease. The Workshop being created to increase the knowledge and understanding of health issues within the area helping to keep the communities healthy.
