VHTs are conducting home visits

Dear Readers,

 

At the end of October last year, KCDC completed part 2 of the Community Health Worker training programme (the practical phase), training 60 Village Health Works (VHTs) in 4 training cohorts. KCDC was very happy with how the training went, with apparently great engagement from the participants. At that time there were still local lock downs happening and schools were still shut. However, this January the therapists are able to start visiting families again, as even though Covid cases remain high, cases do seem to be milder, so visits are possible. In addition, healthcare workers have been encouraged to get a Covid booster so hopefully things are opening up for these communities.  KCDC plan to follow up with the VHTs on a monthly basis.

The good news is that the parent guide has been translated into the local language of Rutooro and the translation of the Lhukhonzo version is in the process of being finalised 

 

Thanks for your support!
