What We Do

Community Health Worker (CHW) Program
Community Health Training
Innovative Health Education Solutions

WiRED’s CHW Program is the latest addition to our health education courses. It provides a three-week training program followed by ongoing continuing health education activities. Like all WiRED’s material, the curriculum is free. Learn more here.

WiRED makes available hundreds of evidence-based health training modules designed for medical personnel as well as people who are not medical professionals. The aim of these programs is to strengthen community illness prevention and enable people to participate in their own health care. Learn more here. 

Situations sometimes arise that call for innovative approaches to train communities and medical personnel. WiRED is a small and flexible organization always on watch for health education needs that require special programs. We then develop and distribute those programs.  Learn more here.  

WiRED’s partnerships are central to the successful distribution of our materials. WiRED develops the health modules and training programs, supplies the hardware, software and teacher training, and then works with our partners who take these resources the last mile.

A Thanksgiving Message from WiRED International

WiRED International’s board and volunteers wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.

This American holiday is about sharing, and this year that must include the sharing of good health practices as COVID-19 cases and deaths are increasing everywhere at an alarming rate. Counter to the large celebrations we have come to expect at Thanksgiving, people this year are wise to avoid gatherings of more than a few close family members, to maintain social distance, to wash hands often and to wear a mask.

In October WiRED International released a Thyroid Diseases Module in response to an urgent request from our partners in Armenia, specifically from Arpine Baghdoyan, who is the Near East Foundation’s Country Director, Armenia. Armenia suffers from an alarmingly high incidence of thyroid issues, and now WiRED offers the module translated into the Armenian language: Վահանագեղձի հիվանդություններ.

What We’ve Done

WiRED History
Honduras Group

During the past two decades, WiRED has delivered innovative health education solutions to low-resource communities throughout the world. We were the first to provide Internet connections in war-ravaged towns throughout the former Yugoslavia; to offer IT-based training programs to Iraqi doctors, to bring computer-based, HIV/AIDS training to East Africa during the height of the crisis; and to present Ebola training to communities in West Africa during the outbreak. Click History to learn more about WiRED’s firsts and accomplishments.

These narratives and the timeline will guide you through WiRED’s 20+ year history
from our beginnings on the ground in the war-torn former Yugoslavia
to our training programs today that are accessible anywhere anytime.

NEW MODULES

WiRED creates and releases modules designed to benefit public health and to reflect a full scope and depth of coverage of key health topics. We upgrade modules as needed to keep pace with medical advances. New module topics are often suggested by doctors and other health professionals to be of concern within the low-service communities they serve.

MODULE SERIES

WiRED’s special series allow users to gain comprehensive knowledge on a given subject. Our series include packages on Mother and Child Health, Infectious Diseases, HIV/AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes, Echocardiology and more. Also, we bundle modules into series in foreign languages such as Spanish and Armenian.
