Capacity Building Beyond Our Walls – And Demonstrating Impact
Gauging Effectiveness in the Community
Two years after AHC was founded, the Community Health Awareness and Education (CHAE) department was established to improve rural health.
The programme has a three-pronged approach: strengthen government health systems, increase health literacy in communities, and support training carried out independently, beyond AHC involvement.
Throughout the programme's activities, baseline and endline surveys are conducted to monitor the programme’s impact on health and health awareness.
In early 2019, a deep dive into the programme’s data was conducted, revealing the effectiveness of the programme’s initiatives. In a five-year period, positive outcomes were measured on a range of areas of health knowledge, attitudes and behaviours related to child health, proving the longstanding impact of AHC’s community arm.
