What We Do

Community Health Worker (CHW) Program
Community Health Training
Vaccinator Training Program (VTP)

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. 

Train vaccinators today to administer vaccines that arrive tomorrow.

Effective COVID-19 vaccines are now being released, and soon they will reach underserved regions. But, where will low-resource countries find enough trained people to vaccinate the population? WiRED’s Vaccinator Training Program (VTP) — based on WHO vaccination guidelines —  trains people at the local level. Learn how 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.

WiRED and UNODC Share Links to Their Educational Resources

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), recognizing the health value of WiRED training material, is linking to WiRED International’s website and to WiRED’s web-based health education programs. In addition, UNODC will provide periodic newsletters announcing WiRED’s programs and new training modules. WiRED, in turn, will provide its readers and followers with updates on the UNODC drug prevention programs. Drug use and addiction have become global health problems, and WiRED recognizes the value of UNODC’s approach to educating people about the dangers of illegal drug use and possible strategies for addiction prevention.

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.
