Orbis Health Extension Workers

Orbis Ethiopia works with Health Extension Workers and Health Development Army that are dedicated members of their communities that spread health education messages - particularly around the World Health Organization's SAFE approach to help prevent infection.

Many Health Extension Workers and Health Development Army personnel are women and can speak with mothers, children and entire households to share important information around prevention as well as help distribute antibiotics which helps prevent trachoma.

Female Health Extension Workers are helping tackle the spread of trachoma in communities

We are dedicated to the fight for the elimination of trachoma and utilize a gender focused campaign to ensure those who are most at risk and affected, women and children, are prioritized.
