THE ADULT HEALTH PROJECT
Since September our team held 3 full outreaches and 2 backpack
nurse outreaches in Embu, Tharaka Nithi and Meru counties. Each outreach and each backpack
service is carried out over a 4 day period. When these are not taking place the Community Health Volunteers run door-to-door services on a daily basis. In the three month period a whopping 8,299
women received family planning services via the project. Basic medical care services, cancer screening, HIV testing and counseling are provided through main outreaches too.
In November our team also participated in the 5-year County Integrated Development Plan for Meru. Huge thanks to our incredible Health Projects Manager Ketty with the team of Community Health Volunteers and the Ministry of Health professionals she works with for this incredible achievement especially as she and her main wingman Adiel have just taken on a second health project.
