Community Health Education (CHE) Curriculum Toolkits

Community Health Education (CHE) Curriculum Toolkits

CHE Toolkit Cover CollageThere are 5 CHE curriculum toolkits establishing a series of resource books with technical information, lessons, and language related to CHE primary assignments and the CHE Project Framework. Although designed as a resource for CHE PCVs, these Toolkits are great resources for all PCVs in Cambodia that want to include health education in their work.

Initially formed back in December 2012, the purpose of the CHE Toolkits is to create a resource that is a technical reference to what CHE PCVs practically need to know at site for health education. Each toolkit contains lesson resources to encourage good teaching methodology with participatory activities. The lessons are designed for capacity building in community members and also can be used as a resource for PCV Training.
