CBS in Senegal

Some of the experiences with CBS IMPLEMENTATIONS

Senegalese Red Cross Society

In Senegal, the process of implementing the CBS platform has started. 24 participants attended a "training of trainers"-course, so they can train other CBS volunteers in community-based health, first aid (CBHFA), and in epidemic control for volunteers (ECV), which are important aspects when responding to SMS reports coming into the CBS platform.

The 24 participants were mainly Red Cross instructors and supervisors who will be taking part in the implementation of the CBS platform, following up on the volunteers, the alerts and the response mechanisms.
