"'I'm a Health Worker' - Abduaraman Gidi" made by IntraHealth International.

Author(s): 
Davis, T.

This is an audio and slide presentation from 2009 by the director of health programs at Food for the Hungry (FH), Thomas P. Davis Jr. In it, Davis discusses FH's utilization of “care groups” to reduce malnutrition and child deaths in Mozambique. The care group method, developed by World Relief, mobilizes teams of women who volunteer to represent, serve and do health promotion with 10-15 households. FH’s care group program resulted in rapid changes in key components of child survival and a decrease in child mortality. The program was cost effective and sustainable.
