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.

What We’ve Done

WiRED History
MVC-013F B

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.

What People Say

“If I’d had the WiRED equivalent as Surgeon General, I could have changed the world. Because you have a distribution network, you have intellectual property, you have content that nobody else has. And you reach the world. And this is more than just a bunch of good people doing nice things for poor people. It’s much bigger. This is health diplomacy.”

Dr. Richard Carmona
17th U.S. Surgeon General and WiRED Board Member

“Information is no longer a luxury for the rich. I don’t have to Google or blame everything on my superstition. All I have to do is access WiRED programs. I am in a better position to take care of my family and my unborn child.”

Brenda Akoth
mother, Kenya

Ever since the launching of WiRED International 12 Centers for Health Education in Armenia, WiRED has proven to be a very instrumental and effective help to substantially improve the health within the Communities of Armenia, as well as increase the awareness in prevention necessities.

Sebouh Baghdoyan
Director of WiRED-Armenia

“The Spanish-language health modules and the computer and AV equipment provided by WiRED allow us to take health education to where the people are — the isolated river-side communities of the many tributaries of the Amazon. The WiRED modules will be a core element of our boat- and land-based rural medical service expeditions, allowing us to effectively integrate education and treatment in the Amazon.”

Dr. Devon Graham
Director, Project Amazonas, Peru

“Through WiRED I realized that it is possible to live a positive life after getting infected with HIV virus and it is possible to prevent the child from being infected by the mother.”

Lavender Amondi
student, Kenya
