This will be by community health workers to promote health and well being with in the community.

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. The Workshop being created to increase the knowledge and understanding of health issues within the area helping to keep the communities healthy.

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.
