Care Groups: A Training Manual for Program Design and Implementation
This guide was developed as a training resource and toolkit to aid in the design, training, implementation and monitoring of Care Group programs. A Care Group is a group of 10-15 volunteer, community-based health educators who regularly meet together with NGO project staff for training and supervision. Each of these volunteers then go out at least monthly to do health promotion with a small cohort of mothers of young children.
This guide should be used by organizations that have already decided that Care Groups are the right approach for their program/context. The intended audience for this guide is: Maternal and Child Health and Nutrition program staff including implementers, designers, technical staff and program managers who will or plan to implement a Care Group program.
