The use of diarrhoeal management counselling cards for community health volunteer training in Indonesia : the HealthCom Project.
The Indonesian Ministry of Health relies on a network of over a million kader (community health volunteers) to bring primary health care to the village level.
In West Java, the Department of Health's Control of Diarrhoeal Disease (CDD) Program recently carried out an extensive research and development effort to produce effective job aids for the kader with a tool to diagnose and treat diarrhoea and teach the proper use of ORS.
Researchers conducted a controlled evaluation in which they measured the cards' effectiveness through observations of kader performance and interviews with mothers they had counselled.
