All Health Extension Practitioners are expected to use health education to communicate with individuals within their community. Individuals include all health service users such as women receiving antenatal care, school children, adolescents and young children. You will be able to deliver health education messages at both household and at a community level.

For example, it is likely there will be TB patients in your community who are receiving anti-TB drugs. Health education for these individuals will include giving advice to cover their mouth while coughing, adhere to the full course of their treatment as well as a variety of other educational issues that will help them get better themselves — and protect the rest of the community from infection.
