    Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) Community-Based Distribution and Peer Education System: Train-the-Trainer Guide for Training PHE Community-Based Distributors and PHE Adult Peer Educators Working on Integrated PHE Activities

    This manual was developed to train individuals to integrate community-based family planning and health into PHE projects through community-based distribution and peer education. The curriculum shows how community-based distributors (CBDs) and Peer Educators (PEs) can be trained to discuss basic ecology, PHE linkages, and reproductive health/family planning within a PHE context. The modules include international family planning norms and guidance on sexually-transmitted infections/diseases. This training was field-tested in Tanzania, Zambia and Ethiopia. It is best for: 1) training-of-trainers events where facilitators learn how to train PHE CBDs and PHE Adult PEs on community-based education and distribution of family planning methods within the context of an integrated PHE intervention; and 2) workshops where local trained facilitators train PHE CBDs and PHE Adult PEs who work on integrated PHE activities.

        Population, Health and Environment (PHE) Community-based Distribution and Peer Education System: A Guide for Training PHE Community-based Distributors

        This training guide was developed to train population, health and environment (PHE) Community-based Distributors (CBDs) who work on integrated PHE activities. A PHE CBD is someone who is trained to provide information on PHE, family planning (FP) methods, and the stocking and sales of FP commodities. This training guide can be used to train new PHE CBDs over a two-day period. It contains 12 modules covering basic topics that PHE CBDs need to know to discuss basic ecology, PHE linkages, and reproductive health/family planning with community members within a PHE context. The modules are based on international norms and guidance as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO). This Guide is based on the publication “Population, Health and Environment (PHE) Community-based Distribution and Peer Education System: Train-the-Trainer Guide for Training PHE Community-based Distributors and PHE Adult Peer Educators,” which is geared for training master trainers who will, in turn, train PHE adult peer educators and PHE CBDs.

            Developing Behavior Change Communications for Population, Health and Environment Projects: A Facilitator’s Guide

            This Guide was designed for facilitators/trainers who work with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) implementing population, health and environment (PHE) activities to develop a behavior change communication (BCC) intervention that supports the achievement of the PHE project’s goals and objectives. It instructs the facilitator on how to train participants on the basic components of a BCC intervention. It also advises how to adapt these components for PHE projects that need integrated messages to raise community awareness of the PHE linkages of health and pro-conservation behaviors. This training is best suited for NGOs and/or government agencies with existing PHE or core health/conservation activities. It is ideal for individuals from organizations that have already participated in a workshop on PHE project design or in a PHE-related workshop in which they developed a PHE conceptual framework, PHE project goal, and objectives and activities.

              Designing and Implementing Integrated Approaches to Population, Health and Environment (PHE): Training Materials

              USAID’s Office of Population and Reproductive Health supported the creation of a set of training materials for developing the capacity of field practitioners to design, implement and monitor integrated approaches to Population-Health-Environment (PHE). The materials aim to build country capacity to implement the steps and models outlined in the Integrating Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) Projects: A Programming Manual developed in 2007 (available in this resource). The training materials consist of the following:

                Empowering Green Volunteers: Tools to Discuss Environment, Health and Population

                This training resource was produced by the Green Belt Movement (GBM) and FHI 360 as part of the USAID-supported Program on Research for Strengthening Services (PROGRESS) Project in Kenya. GBM and FHI 360 developed this training manual to prepare Green Volunteers to implement activities that link population, health and the environment. The manual was revised based on feedback from pilot project trainings and research findings. The training manual can be used to guide a training that introduces Green Volunteers to PHE and to family planning, covers healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies, offers skills-building opportunities, demonstrates how to use the PHE flip-book, and reviews basic reporting requirements for the project. The training manual, which is written in English, includes participant handouts in both English and Swahili, reporting forms, and a post-training evaluation form.

                  A Manual for Training Community Conservation and Health Workers (CCHWs)

                  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.

                    Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) eLearning Course

                    The Population, Health, and Environment (PHE) approach to community development aims to simultaneously improve access and equity to primary health care services, particularly family planning and reproductive health, while also helping communities conserve biodiversity, manage natural resources, and develop sustainable livelihoods. This course will introduce learners to the fundamentals of the PHE approach including PHE relationships, the benefits of integration, program considerations, the PHE policy and advocacy landscape, and how the PHE approach can contribute to global development priorities, such as the Sustainable Development Goals and Family Planning 2020 in an efficient and effective way.
