Community based training
Regional Health Literacy and participatory action research training In 2010, Lusaka District Health Management Team with TARSC and with Cordaid support piloted a programme to train health literacy facilitators and hold community health literacy sessions in 3 areas of Lusaka. The positive feedback from that programme led to dialogue with the Ministry of Health and the proposal for national level implementation of the healthy literacy HL) programme. A national stakeholder workshop was held in August 2012 with lead stakeholders to review the work done to date and discuss the content, approach and steps towards implementing the programme at national level. In Uganda a regional training workshop was held in September 2012 with five civil society organisations (HEPS, CEHURD, AGHA, UNHCO and NAFOPHANU) who have formed a steering group for the programme. Institutions interested in the health literacy programme please email firstname.lastname@example.org with HEALTH LITERACY in the subject line.

Budget monitoring will be taken forward in 2013 as a means of promoting equity and social determinants of health.
