Introducing rural communities to the quality medical support they deserve.

Empowering Rural Communities

REAP's community health workers program places trained, village-based health workers in rural communities to bring quality health care and support to the mothers of young children.

Community health workers provide mothers a variety of essential early childhood services.

These services range from breastfeeding support to child growth tracking, and nutritional education to early childhood stimulation.

Community health workers use house visits to deliver pertinent monthly health lessons

A pregnant woman might receive information about breastfeeding, while the mother of a 12-month old might receive information about how and when to introduce meat to her child.
