Boost is a digital job aide for community health workers and peer educators. It is a mobile-first set of communication tools that enhances their knowledge, skills, and confidence to share accurate and actionable HIV, SRH (Sexual and Reproductive Health), and other primary health information with their communities.

Boost was designed and developed in collaboration with more than 100 community health workers from Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The Boost brand provides easy, up-to-date, visual, and interactive materials on HIV, sexual health, female genital schistosomiasis (FGS), COVID-19, and other primary health information, available across a range of platforms. It supports community health workers’ ongoing learning and equips them with fun, interactive tools that they can use and share with their clients and peers.
