    This manual for training Community Health Workers ( CHWs), Village Health Teams (VHTs), Community Forest Associations (CFAs) and Community Wildlife Conservation workers (CWCWs) aims at building their capacity to accompany the households and communities in their efforts to improve their health and environmental conservation initiatives in an integrated manner. Recognizing that households and communities are fully engaged in addressing their own health and issues, the training intends to enable Community Health Workers, Village Health Teams and Environmental Conservation Workers to assist communities in assessing their situations, identifying gaps and reflecting on the causes of the gaps in order to take action. The objective of this manual is to build the capacity of CCHWs to lead their communities in health improvement and environmental conservation initiatives in terms of: disease prevention, health promotion, simple curative care, conservation of forests and protected areas, pollution control, gender empowerment and livelihood improvement. In this way, the CBWs will be able to motivate and advocate for the key household health and conservation practices in their areas of coverage.

    Each module has a set of trainer resources, participant materials, training evaluation tools, and reference materials for further reading. The training manual is designed for so that the curriculum can cascade national, regional, local/district and community levels across LVBC member states.

      This ENGAGE presentation highlights many of Kenya’s development successes, including the national climate change strategy and national population policy. Breaking down complex concepts and using nontechnical language, the presentation shows the connections between people’s access to family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) information and services, their health, and their reliance on natural resources. The presentation connects the impacts of FP/RH access for households, communities, and the country, drawing on examples of successful PHE efforts in Kenya. Stakeholders from diverse sectors within Kenya can use this resource to promote a policy dialogue about the critical role of population dynamics with health and the environment, and the ways that investments in FP/RH can propel progress towards Kenya’s many development goals.
