Doctors die by suicide at two times the rate of the general population. It’s clear there’s much more that we can do to prevent physicians’ struggles from becoming mental health emergencies.

With funding from Johnson & Johnson Foundation, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), UNICEF has sourced and digitized a health worker training content library to keep frontline health workers continuously informed. Accessible on a variety of digital channels, the collection is designed to be clear and understandable to all.
Community Health Workers (CHWs) provide basic health services to their neighbors, often going door to door to reach the unreached. New research shows how CHWs maintained care within their own communities even as COVID-19 disrupted other healthcare services globally. Still, most CHWs aren’t paid. On June 23, the Community Health Impact Coalition is previewing this research and making the case for pay and protections for the world's 3+ million CHWs.

Watch this video, then share it with global leaders. Tell them statements and stats about health workers are not enough—they must act now to support frontline health workers. A minimum of 115,000 health workers have died from COVID-19, and many others have left the health care field during the pandemic. We can expect more pandemics like COVID-19 in the future, yet health systems in many countries are still not prepared. This is a problem for all of us: viruses do not respect borders. Even before the pandemic the world was facing a massive shortage of health workers, mostly in low- and middle-income countries. In this video, health workers and the Frontline Health Workers Coalition ask U.S. and global leaders to act now and not wait for the next pandemic to strengthen and protect the workforce.
Nursing in the U.S. is facing a moment of crisis. As the pandemic persists, nurses continue to provide care, but their vital role remains undervalued. This new J&J campaign celebrating nurses reinforces the Company's commitment to nurses—and reminds the general public that nurses are a linchpin to better health for all.

For too long, discussions about CHWs have been happening without CHWs. It’s time for a change. The Community Health Impact Coalition and Stanford Center for Health Education are launching an Advocacy and Storytelling eLearning Course for CHWs. Created with the expert guidance of CHWs from around the world, the course aims to provide CHWs with the information and tools they need to advocate for themselves and the issues most important to their communities. The course is available free of charge on the Stanford Digital Medic app and can be downloaded for use offline.
