School of Primary Health Care - Prevention and Cure Hope and Healing

The School of Primary Health Care

Bringing Hope and Healing

If you have a heart to make a difference and to bring health care, understanding, and the hope of Christ to people with minimal or no health care accessible, this school is for you!

Designed with a heart to see long-term change, the School of Primary Health Care (SPHC) will equip you with skills to serve as a health care worker to those with little or no access to health care.

Additionally, the SPHC will teach you how to address primary health care issues in the most practical way: to care for as much of the problem as possible, as close to the problem as possible. The School of Primary Health Care is for anyone – no medical background/training required! Whether you want to simply broaden your perspectives, or become equipped for medical missions, through the SPHC, you can bring hope and healing to those who desperately need it.

*Prerequisite: Successful completion of any YWAM DTS (Discipleship Training School).


Be trained as a missionary health care worker by instructors from a variety of different health care backgrounds such as doctors, physician assistants, midwives, nurses, physiotherapists and long-term missionaries in the 12-week Lecture phase.

Subjects include Biblical basis for health care, mother and child health, anatomy and physiology, tropical diseases, food and nutrition, water and sanitation, disease eradication, malaria, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, skin diseases, community development and much more!


Primary Health Care is a ministry that demonstrates God’s heart of love and compassion towards people in a practical way and enables them to be brought into wholeness- physically, spiritually and emotionally. It provides access to the least evangelized nations and opens doors for opportunities to share the Gospel. It also provides opportunities for other teams to work alongside, to provide discipleship and evangelism, particularly in needy areas.

Primary Health Care is essential to reaching the unreached and least evangelized areas of the world as most of these areas exist within the poorest of the poor nations.

The school aims to:

  • EQUIP STUDENTS with the means to enter otherwise closed communities, and to see mercy ministry locations established within the Indian Ocean Gateway region and beyond, using a Primary Health Care approach.
  • FACILITATE ACCESS into poor and needy communities both rural and city areas by using the keys of Primary Health Care to serve the people and show God’s love and empower them to look after themselves, both physically and spiritually. (1 Corinthians 3:16-17)
  • PROVIDE PRACTICAL TRAINING for students that will enable them to better serve the people they are called to minister.
