With the support of a Wallenberg International Summer Travel Award, I was able to work with Tiyatien Health, a grassroots community health organization in Zwedru, Liberia. Tiyatien Health implements an innovative community health worker (CHW) program throughout Southeast Liberia, which functions to disperse life-saving health services to Liberia’s rural poor. The objective of my project, titled Health Through Accompaniment in Rural Liberia, was to collect qualitative narratives from Tiyatien Health’s CHWs and their patients in order to further highlight the effectiveness of this program. With the aid of my findings and qualitative narratives, Tiyatien Health will be in a better position to leverage the attention and support that their CHW program deserves. Additionally, Tiyatien Health will be able to further develop and expand the program to continue providing essential health services to the most under-served communities of Liberia.
