The comparative agility of the community health worker cadre in fragile & conflict-affected contexts

In this presentation Joanna Raven explores the comparative agility of the community health worker cadres in four fragile & conflict-affected contexts – Lebanon, Myanmar, Nepal and Sierra Leone – during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This is part of the team’s research into the roles of community health workers and their gendered experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic in fragile and shock-prone settings. There’s more on the project here.
