Immunization and family planning are basic health services that are available free of charge in dispensaries, health centers and hospitals throughout Kenya. But in some places, mothers face many challenges getting these essential services because they live far away from health facilities.
Philomen Mutai makes a point during a community dialogue held to mark World Population Day at Seguton trading centre in Keringet, Kuresoi South, Nakuru County on July 11th. The event gave community members an opportunity to discuss family planning and get advice from health care providers and staff of Afya Uzazi.
Stronger linkages between the community and health facilities had resulted improved reporting on health services by community health volunteers, according to the latest edition of the Afya Uzazi Data Bulletin, a quarterly publications that highlights the project’s performance and use of data for decision making.
Afya Uzazi Chief of Party Dr. Boniface Maket joined Baringo County Governor Stanley Kiptis and other leaders to welcome the US Ambassador Kyle McCarter to the county in Kabarnet town on Tuesday December 10th.
