Living Goods Launches Second Learning Site in Burkina Faso’s Manga District

Living Goods has launched its second learning site in the Manga Health District, Burkina Faso. This project, which began on May 14, 2024, is a collaboration between the Ministry of Health and Living Goods, aimed at managing the performance of integrated and digital primary healthcare. The initiative will cover more than 400 Community Health Workers spread across 44 health facilities.

Since 2020, Living Goods has been supporting the Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene of Burkina Faso in strengthening the community health system. The goal is to enhance the capabilities of community health workers using digital tools and provide quality training for an effective performance management system. Drawing on successful experiences in Kenya and Uganda, Living Goods uses the DESC approach (Digitized, Equipped, Supervised, and Compensated CHWs) to structure its interventions.
