Summer 2015 Public Health Work in Chicuque, Mozambique

a trip by Joshua Littlejohn
From: May 18th 2015
Until: August 24th 2015

I was awarded funding for an international internship with Y-Center, a social innovation company that operates in Mozambique and India, for 12 weeks during the summer of 2015. The larger project that I am part of is called Connect The Dots and is an SMS text-based system for disease reporting and supply inventory designed to connect community health workers (CHWs) with the central Ministry of Health. My project will be to work with the CHWs and local resources to create new visual media for use in education campaigns. These materials should be low-cost, easily reproducible, low-tech, and locally relevant. The challenge is on. Time to put my public health and nursing skills to the test.
