Introduction

In Study Session 13, you learnt how to plan your health education activities, including selecting appropriate health education methods and developing your own work plans. In this study session, you will learn how to carry out your health education activities. This session builds on the work plan you developed in Study Session 13. A significant portion of your work as a Health Extension Practitioner will involve carrying out health education and health promotion activities. You have probably heard the old saying, ‘a plan that is not implemented is no plan at all’. Therefore in this study session, you will learn how to develop and implement a range of health education activities that will help you work with the people you are responsible for. More specifically, you will learn about the implementation process using community organising, training manpower, as well as identifying and utilising community resources.
