COVID-19 Digital Classroom: Course Series

COVID-19 Digital Classroom: Course Series

The COVID-19 course series is part of the COVID-19 Digital Classroom initiative. These courses are primarily designed for community-based health workers who practice in low- and middle-income countries. It covers a range of topics on COVID-19, including basic information on the virus and how to mitigate its public health effects. The course is designed to synthesize the most important, high-level information on COVID-19 from a variety of well-respected resources in a practical way. Many of the resources are cited for your reference and include documents and guidelines from the World Health Organization, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the UN, and many other reliable sources. While community-based health workers are the primary audience for this course series, the topics covered are relevant for everyone involved in responding to this pandemic worldwide.

It is important to note that while these courses provide a generalized overview of COVID-19 and information on how to contain the spread of the disease, they cannot account for everything, especially as we are still learning day-to-day about the virus and its impact on our health and society. Therefore, please use this course as a guide, and continue to familiarize yourself with your context, including your country’s public health guidelines, in order to best customize the content we cover here for you and your community’s specific needs.

Join the Facebook Group to engage with the community of health workers and global health leaders using the COVID-19 Digital Classroom tools.

La serie de cursos sobre la COVID-19 forma parte de la iniciativa del Aula Digital sobre COVID-19. Estos cursos están diseñados principalmente para el personal comunitario de la salud que trabaja en países de ingresos bajos y medios. Abordan una variedad de temas relacionados con la COVID-19 e incluyen información básica sobre el virus y cómo mitigar sus efectos en la salud pública. Los cursos están concebidos para sintetizar de forma práctica la información más importante y de alto nivel sobre la COVID-19 de un conjunto de recursos prestigiosos.

Aun cuando el personal comunitario de la salud es el público principal de esta serie de cursos, los temas tratados son pertinentes para todas las personas que participan en la respuesta a esta pandemia en todo el mundo.

Es importante señalar que, si bien estos cursos ofrecen una visión general de la COVID-19, así como información sobre cómo contener la propagación de la enfermedad, no pueden explicarlo todo, especialmente porque todavía estamos aprendiendo día a día sobre el virus y su impacto en nuestra salud y en la sociedad.

Course 1: What is COVID-19?

Course 1: What is COVID-19?

The first course in this series focuses on building core knowledge, skills, and attitudes around reducing the risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19, and how to protect yourself and your community. 

Topics covered in this course include:

  • Basic information on COVID-19 (i.e., where it comes from and how it spreads), 
  • Vulnerable groups
  • Misinformation around COVID-19
  • Recognizing signs and symptoms
  • Prevention strategies
  • Referral and management of suspected and confirmed cases.

Course 2: Prevention and Protection

Course 2: Prevention and Protection

This course covers COVID-19 spread prevention and how you can protect yourself and your community from contracting it. The course focuses on practical ways to practice these behaviors in a variety of different contexts, including in communal spaces, at home, and at health facilities. It discusses how the community can work together to prevent outbreaks of COVID-19 and slow the spread of the disease, so that hospitals do not become overwhelmed with cases. 

It is important to note that while this course provides a generalized overview of COVID-19 prevention and protection measures that are widely applicable to a variety of contexts and circumstances, this course does not account for everything, especially as the health community is still learning day-to-day about the virus and its impact. Therefore, please use this course as a guide, and continue to familiarize yourself with your context to best customize the content we cover here for you and your community’s specific needs.


Course 3: Addressing Mental Health and Wellness

Course 3: Addressing Mental Health and Wellness

This course will cover the mental health impact of COVID-19, and how a combination of psychosocial support systems and a wellness perspective can be used to mitigate the effects of the highly disruptive, stressful, and disorienting COVID-19 pandemic. While our focus at this time may be more on physical health and wellbeing, it is vital that we do not overlook the importance of addressing mental health concerns, particularly given the potentially traumatic effect of the pandemic across communities and especially for health workers and other vulnerable populations. 

It is important to note that while this course provides a generalized overview of COVID-19’s effect on mental health and wellness, there are differences across countries and contexts. There must not be a one-size-fits-all approach to addressing the mental health and psychosocial needs of the population. Therefore, please use this course as a guide, and continue to familiarize yourself with your context in order to best customize the content we cover here for you and your community’s specific needs. 


Course 4: An Overview of Contact Tracing

Course 4: An Overview of Contact Tracing

The goal of this course is to help community-based health workers become familiar with the process and skills involved in contact tracing. In this course, we will cover the purpose of contact tracing, which involves identifying, assessing, and managing people who have been exposed to COVID-19 to prevent its transmission. We will cover the steps involved, including how to assess your contacts’ level of risk and how to provide them with the support they need.


Course 5: Home-based Care and Isolation for COVID-19

Course 5: Home-based Care and Isolation for COVID-19

The goal of this course is to provide community-based health workers with guidance on how to advise community members on home-based care for COVID-19. This course identifies community-based health workers as people working to address the public health of their communities (for example, community health workers, community health volunteers, health facility workers, health educators / trainers, and health project managers). 

The course will cover how to determine eligibility criteria for home-based care and isolation. We will also cover how to support people with COVID-19 in their homes if they meet these criteria, including virtual support (telehealth) and support from their caregivers.


Course 6: Community-based Surveillance for COVID-19

Course 6: Community-based Surveillance for COVID-19

The goal of this course is to provide community-based health workers with a comprehensive understanding of community-based surveillance and their role in it. Community-based surveillance is a rapid and effective system for monitoring your community's health during a public health crisis, such as COVID-19. It is a great way to track events and behaviors that could lead to an increase in COVID-19 cases. This course will walk you through the community-based surveillance workflow, including your responsibilities as a community-based health worker in supporting the data collection and dissemination of information during this pandemic.


Course 7: Risk Communication and Community Engagement for COVID-19

Course 7: Risk Communication and Community Engagement for COVID-19

As a community-based health worker, you can use risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) to encourage your community to make informed decisions and positive health behavior changes. Throughout this course we will give you an overview of the different elements of RCCE and strategies you can use during the COVID-19 pandemic to help your community stay safe and healthy.


Course 8: Continuity of Primary Health Care During COVID-19

Course 8: Continuity of Primary Health Care During COVID-19

The goal of this course is to explain how community-based health workers can deliver primary health care during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to WHO, primary health care provides comprehensive care for health needs throughout a person's life. It ranges from prevention to treatment, rehabilitation, and palliative care. Since primary healthcare is often an individual’s first point of contact with the healthcare system, it is important for your community members to receive this care. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a serious impact on primary healthcare delivery, as many health centers, clinics, and hospitals shifted their focus to the COVD-19 response.

This course introduces strategies to continue routine care visits during the pandemic, including for non-communicable diseases, family planning, sexual and reproductive health, and maternal and child health.
