Outreach

The Siyayinqoba Outreach programme recruits, trains and deploys people to work in communities to improve health outcomes through social mobilisation and training. By providing scientific information in a way that is easily understandable, CMT’s social mobilisers and trainers empower individuals and communities to take an active part in managing & improving their health.

CMT is a strong advocate for the re-engineering of Primary Health Care and supports the role that community wealth workers, social mobilisation and community media can play in improving health outcomes in communities.

CMT’s Outreach team currently work in Kwa-Zulu Natal, and the Eastern and Western Cape implementing social mobilisation activities funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and training and community engagement on exclusive breastfeeding and handwashing funded through the United Nations Children’s Fund.
