Frontline Health Defenders: World Health Worker Week 2021

This World Health Worker Week, we’re celebrating the health workers and mobilizers, the providers and educators who make the essential, possible.

Since COVID-19’s start, health actors across PSI’s 40+ countries have pivoted with passion and perseverance to meet consumers’ health needs; they’ve helped to identify new channels, like WhatsApp, to provide timely and trusted services; and they’ve supported innovating systems, like e-learning platforms, to build the capacity integral to delivering on our commitment to client-centered care.

Now, in the year since COVID-19 took root, we’re pausing to honor the heroes on the frontlines and the partners who support them – every step of the way.

This week, meet the health workers helming our work on the ground; learn about their consumer-powered approach to engagement and counseling; and explore where we, alongside health workers everywhere, are heading as we progress toward Universal Health Coverage.
