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.

COVID-19 Update

WiRED International’s Vaccinator Training Program is firing up in Kenya and Peru, and articles will appear soon chronicling its progress. In the meantime, here are some recent updates on the COVID-19 pandemic and the rush to get populations vaccinated as cases rise worldwide.

Scientists expect viruses to keep mutating; sometimes they emerge and disappear and sometimes they emerge and persist. Multiple COVID-19 variants are circulating globally, and CDC is monitoring these variants per the following classifications:

• Variant of interest
• Variant of concern
• Variant of high consequence

Breaking News! WiRED Vaccinator Training Begins This Week in Kenya!

On Monday, March 15, 2021, WiRED launched the first class of our Vaccinator Training Program (VTP) in Obunga, Kenya. Nurse Winnie Nafula and clinician Zablon Kitoli are leading the instruction. Twenty-six students are taking the 45 hours of training, after which they will sit for a final exam, and, if successful, will receive a WiRED certificate. WiRED has already trained 15 Community Health Workers (CHWs), who since the fall of 2020 have made over 6,000 monthly contacts addressing basic health problems and dispensing general health information among their communities. These CHWs have been instrumental in teaching many thousands of people about COVID-19 prevention measures. Soon, they will introduce basic information about COVID-19 vaccines, so the communities will understand the value of the shot and be ready when vaccines arrive.

WiRED Launches COVID Vaccinator Training Program

The COVAX global effort to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine to underserved countries is well underway. But what needs to happen to get doses from airports to arms?

WiRED International announces the launch of our Vaccinator Training Program (VTP), based entirely on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) training curriculum but with enhanced features to prepare what we call grassroots vaccinators. The objective of WiRED’s program is to train people at the local level to move vaccines safely from central drop-off points to communities, to prepare the communities for vaccinations, to properly screen patients, to administer COVID-19 vaccinations and to monitor patients after the shot.

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.

Free 400+ Training Modules

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.

ENTIRE HEALTH LEARNING LIBRARY
Our e-library allows physicians and nurses, community health workers and general audiences to address the prevention and treatment of both infectious and noncommunicable diseases in underserved regions. WiRED’s 400+ health modules are available free of charge by anyone anywhere for copying and download onto computers, flash drives and other portable storage media.
