For several years, the Concordia Welfare Education Foundation (CWEF) has been
engaged in a health initiative in villages in Yunnan, China to understand community health practices and provide support for the improvement of health outcomes. Having implemented several measures at the community level, the next phase of the Health
Education Advocacy and Literacy (HEAL) project will focus on improving
health-related outcomes at the school level. This year, CWEF is considering upgrading the public health curriculum, especially on health education for pregnant women, children and the elderly in the community in Yunnan.
Students will utilize various data analysis tools and interview techniques
to do analytical research. At the end of the program, students will develop a research report on public health and execute a health-based workshop prototype for CWEF.
The Concordia Welfare & Education Foundation (CWEF) is a Hong Kong based non-profit that works with schools and communities in China and Cambodia to
improve health and education outcomes. Their vision of thriving communities serving and inspiring home in others is supported by a passionate and dedicated team with years of experience.
