Episode 2: Healthright Frontline Health Workers
HealthRight and I AM GPH have partnered to bring you this 4-part podcast series profiling four different Frontline health workers (FHWs) and their work in four different countries. As a global health NGO focused on health system strengthening for marginalized populations, much of HealthRight's work is devoted to building the capacity of FHWs to better meet the needs of the communities they serve. These are some of those stories. This podcast series is hosted by Dr. Peter Navario, Executive Director of HealthRight and Clinical Associate Professor at NYU's College of Global Public Health.
Frontline health workers (FHWs) play an essential role in the prevention, identification and response to ill-health globally. For marginalized communities in particular, FHWs are the only link between them and the health system. Investment in FHWs has been shown to be a highly cost-effective way to ensure healthier, safer communities around the world.
