Traduction en anglais : Community health worker competency in managing acute respiratory infections of childhood in bolivia.
A competency-based training and evaluation method was developed to improve and assess the management of acute respiratory infections (ARI) in young children by community health workers (CHWs) in Bolivia.
This method was used to evaluate three groups of Bolivian CHWs, provide them with a one-day refresher course in ARI management, and assess the effects of the course.
The results showed the CHWs capable of acquiring the skills needed to effectively manage ARI cases in accordance with the World Health Organization's ARI case management strategy.
It was found important, however, that their training emphasize how to count the respirations of children with tachypnea and how to identify chest indrawing.
