PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The purpose of each Unit Standard is to introduce learners to the various aspects of community care and to encourage learners to gain experience of community health care with a view to a possible career in this industry.

Rationale:

To develop appropriate skills and experience for Ancillary Health Workers (AHWs) to facilitate active participation in community health care through the empowerment of individuals and communities, thereby creating and encouraging health awareness as part of General Education and Training.

Many areas of peri-urban and rural South Africa cannot be reached by professional health workers due to the scarcity of this category of worker. The key role of AHWs is to improve the quality of life of community members by providing improved access to and delivery of primary health care at local level within the context of an intersectoral environment. There are many people already working in this field and they need to receive recognition and to have access to developed career pathways.
