We made the decision early in the COVID-19 pandemic to continue and even intensify our efforts to strengthen high quality community health services in Nama
sub-county. In a few short months, and under very challenging circumstances, we managed to train and equip a cadre of 50 CHWs, begin building capacity at
government health centres, ramp up our outreach and clinic services, and reach out directly to our community through various types of media.
In response to COVID-19 we supplied our health workers and CHWs with personal protective equipment (PPE), distributed hand washing stations, supplied CHWs with infrared thermometers, set up screening and triaging station at our health centre, and disseminated over 1,000 pandemic prevention posters. While the COVID-19 pandemic was destabilizing and caused great suffering in our community, we have come out of it stronger and with an even greater bond with the communities we serve.
