Under the Atal Bihari Bajpai Bal Arogya Evam Poshan Mission, a five day training module for ICDS health frontline functionaries (AWWs) was developed. This training module was produced keeping in mind the fact that AWWs should be well informed and confident about using the available mechanisms and platforms for increasing coverage of evidence based interventions as well as have the required skills for performing their tasks effectively.
The module, an easy, simple and handy reference material, ensures that each AWW is well versed with rationale of messages on health and nutrition and aware of her roles and responsibilities and the services being promoted by her. The training module also focuses on the expected output of AWWs.
The training module is significantly important in the roll-out of ABM till the AWC level by imparting correct and updated technical knowledge to the AWWs. It is an important tool to deliver programme information and equip them with the required skill to perform their tasks effectively. The overall scope of work of New Concept was:
- Developing and Designing the Training Manuals (Participants Manual and Facilitator's Guide).
- Developing and Designing the Training aids (five).
- Pre-testing the Training Kit with AWWs and Supervisors in Gwalior
