Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Community health workers (CHW) play a vital role in the provision of health-care services in South Africa, and the need for the training and development of these CHWs is obvious and urgent. A major obstacle to the provision of such training is the low level of literacy among CHWs. It is for this reason that Juta Academic has teamed up with a number of key organisations and professionals involved in community health and adult education to develop the Health for All series. With over 150 illustrations, these outcomes-based training materials will develop the health-care knowledge and skills of CHWs and bolster their literacy, language and communication skills. The series can be used for health-care training courses, with each of the six books forming a separate module. The publications can also serve as reference books for use in the field.
