Course Overview

In January 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of a new coronavirus disease in Hubei, China to be a Public Health Emergency of international concern and by March 2020 the WHO declared this a pandemic. In India, the first COVID-19 case was diagnosed on 30th January 2020. With cases rising steadily in various states, IMA-HP has designed several courses consisting of videos, lectures, webinars, power point slides and guidelines for its members that have been curated from government bodies or other credible organizations.
Social mobilizers, community workers and volunteers have an important role in providing timely and actionable health information so that people know how to protect themselves and reduce the risks associated with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). In this course social workers associated with IMA-HP will learn about the epidemiology, IPC, personal protection from coronavirus, myths and facts associated with the disease and learn how to perform their role in the community to control spread of COVID-19.
