This training packet provides an introduction to interactive methods for training community health workers, and three lesson plans for training CHWs to include breast and cervical cancer messages in their work. The included lesson plans are (a) key facts about finding breast and cervical cancer early; (b) barriers to breast and cervical cancer screening, and (c) encouraging women to get screened for breast and cervical cancer. Trainer resources, handouts of additional information for participants, and transparencies are also contained in the training packet. By reading the packet, reviewing the suggested materials, and delivering the lesson plans, community health workers will be provided with knowledge and skills for talking about breast and cervical cancer with the women they serve and for recruiting women into breast and cervical cancer screening programs.
