What We Do
In 2005 ICROSS will train 900 health workers with the assistance of the Irish people. We will also train over 600 carers of AIDS patients and hundreds of other health workers. This is part of a holistic and comprehensive strategy to transfer medical knowledge into the tribal belief systems in Africa.
All our training is through the local culture and language. These health workers are supported by local communities 80% of our 560 volunteers are mothers and grandmothers. It costs 6 pounds to train one health worker in disease control and prevention, hygiene and sanitation.
