Cascade Model in Burundi

Cascade Model in Burundi

Posted by Bikorimana on 24 Jan 2018

Dear All greeting and happy new year,
After many several years not implementing care group approach, I back on this approach
This year, I am starting a nutrition project (a PM2A) in two health district. I will benefit my experience on CG with FH where I implemented CG approach for a PM2A project (Tubaramure) from 2009 to 2014. 

But, this time I will try a new structure in which I will have a group of AoC (Agents of Change: Mixed group of Religious Leaders and CHWs) between Promoter and CGV (care group Volunteers). 

I would learn from everyone who used such approach

You may be interested in looking at a similar cascade model, the Baby Friendly Community Initiative in the Gambia.  The religious and civic leaders created a Health Committee responsible to them with Midwife, CHW (usually a man) and 5 or 6 elected members (two of the members are men) -- the Health Committee is trained by MOH and then they use a variety of methods to reach the community.  I'd be happy to give you more information if you are interested.  But if you Google Baby Friendly Community Initiative Gambia, you should be able to bring up the National Nutrition Agency (NaNA) where there is info.
