Over the years, Links International has seen thousands of lives changed and hundreds of communities transformed. It’s come about through the training our teams have done, empowering community influencers in healthcare.
Our training is open to the whole community, but we have found that training a core team of committed community influencers to become voluntary healthcare workers is the best approach. Links helps this team discover how they can bring positive change to the key issues their community is facing. Where appropriate, we enhance the training of existing healthcare professionals.
Links’ healthcare training is sustainable. On average, once we’ve completed five training trips, communities are not only healthier but also able to independently develop their own healthcare strategies and to spread the word to others.
