Njala College, Sierra Leone - A structured course of Primary Health Care materials for teachers

We are also building a similar course for the Ngara  region of North West Tanzania. The materials will be used by trainee teachers at the Diocese Training College and by teachers working in the region.

This course will offer teachers in both the primary and secondary sectors notes on ways of assisting their students to recognize the symptoms of and corrective actions for a range of illnesses and diseases. They will also provide suggestions for ways in which young people can assist sufferers.
