Amagugu Asakhula is a feasibility study of a family-based intervention promoting healthy behaviours among preschool-aged children in Soweto, South Africa. The study involves training community health workers to deliver the intervention to parents or caregivers, and investigating different aspects of the feasibility and acceptability of the intervention.
The intervention is being implemented with community health workers and caregivers of pre-schoolers in Soweto. The primary aim is to assess whether the intervention is feasible to deliver through community health workers, and whether participating community health workers and caregivers find it acceptable and helpful. The study also examines how the process of recruiting community health workers and caregivers can work in this setting.
