About the role of health promoter
As a health promoter, you will assess, define, implement and supervise all Health Promotion and Community Engagement (HPCE) activities in the project area. These activities aim to increase the community’s knowledge of health (risks), improve current health practices, promote our services, and support preventive activities with community collaboration.
This will be achieved through outreach activities bridging the project and targeted population while respecting different communities' cultures and practices to optimise our information, education, and communication strategies. You will analyse local culture, traditions and health perceptions to support social mapping and adapt effective health practices while maintaining a strong link to our medical activities. Responsibilities also include developing and adapting health promotion materials according to your analyses to ensure relevance, adequacy and comprehension. As this is a supervising role, other crucial elements are recruitment, training, evaluation, and development of (local) health promotion staff.
