| ||Child Survival Community Health Curriculum [PDF] |
This manual was authored by several Medical Teams International staff, including Kecia Bertermann, Yanti Damanik, Arista Ginting, Barbara J. Huff, Lydia Sagala, and Harry Sosiawan. The health lessons in the curriculum are delivered by Community Health Facilitators (CHF).
Each CHF works with several mothers’ groups under the Care Group Model. The curriculum consists of five modules covering Maternal & Neonatal Care; Immunization; Diarrhea; Acute Respiratory Infection; and, Nutrition and Breastfeeding. As a preface to the health modules, there is a Foundational Module that introduces a holistic view of health with a basis in scripture and the Christian faith.
This manual was developed as part of the Medical Teams International Child Survival project in Nais, Indonesia.

| ||Community-based Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses Facilitators Guide[PDF] |
The facilitators guide was developed to equip volunteer Community Health Promoters (CHP) in a Child Survival Project with the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to teach and support Household Health Promoters (HHP) to prepare for their work. HHPs will in turn pass on the knowledge and help the community to adopt new behaviors to improve health among women and children in the target area of Grand Cape Mount County, Liberia.
The guide is divided into six modules including: facilitating adult learning, breastfeeding and nutrition, immunization, diarrhea, malaria and pneumonia. Each module has several lessons with suggested teaching activities, teaching aids, presentation and facilitator notes.

| ||The Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project |
The Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project is led by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Center for Communication Programs, in partnership with FHI 360 and Management Sciences for Health. K4Health works to improve access to and sharing of global, regional, and country-specific public health knowledge, particularly about family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH). K4Health approaches its work from a knowledge management (KM) perspective. Sometimes called “KME” for “knowledge management and exchange.” The organization works to evaluate the knowledge sharing structures in health programs and systems to find ways for knowledge to be shared more effectively. Its products and services strengthen the KME capabilities of the global health sector.
