Episode 5: Johnson & Johnson Centre for Health Worker Innovation presents ‘The Point of Care Around the World’ in association with The Conduit

This year, The Conduit has partnered with the Johnson & Johnson Center for Health Worker Innovation to create a podcast series that explores the meaning of care in different communities around the world. From physicians to directors, community workers to advocates, we will be talking to individuals on the ground to discover answers to the question, “what is the point of care?”

In this episode the conversation will focus on the role of Community Health Workers across sub-Saharan Africa who are responsible for delivering care to approximately 40% of the continent’s population – that’s 916,000 active Community Health Workers treating over 400 million people across 24 different countries. Though they are often not formally recognized as professionals, Community Health Workers may be responsible for at least a dozen different types of preventive, promotional, and curative services depending on the country and local context.

Paul’s guests in this episode are Prossy Muyingo and Dr. Madeleine Ballard. Prossy is a Community Health Worker in Mityana District, Central Uganda and since 2019, Prossy has been providing reproductive, maternal, and child health services to 120 households. Madeleine is the co-founder and executive director of the Community Health Impact Coalition, a global alliance of community health implementers working to ensure that Community Health Workers receive fair pay, field support, and the official recognition they deserve so everyone can access high quality healthcare.
