The Carter Center and Partner Organizations Fight Trachoma with Health Education

Health education activities are an integral part of the facial cleanliness and hygiene promotion component of the SAFE strategy for trachoma control. Trachoma control programs rely on community volunteers, primary school teachers, religious leaders, local government authorities, and local media to promote healthy behaviors that prevent trachoma.

The education materials contained in this library are designed to appeal to a range of audiences that vary based on geographical location, age, education, and cultural group. For example, primary school students respond to different types of health education than adult women. To address these differences, ministries of health and partner organizations have developed sets of health education materials unique to each target audience. This electronic library contains materials designed for different audiences and includes a brief tutorial on how the materials are developed and used.

Hilton Foundation, and the Lions Clubs International Foundation for their support in the development, production, and distribution of these materials.
