CHVs ARE VERY VITAL IN THE HEALTH SECTOR

It will cost Kenya 11 billion shillings over the next four years to hire CHV’s, Mr. Daniel Kavoo the acting head of the Community Health and Development Services unit at the Ministry of Health said during the Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child Health and Nutrition conference organized by World Vision in Nairobi on 5th February.

The health volunteers will play the biggest role in the Universal Health Coverage because they provide primary and health promotion services.

Alice Yugi, the nutrition and child health expert at World Vision Kenya said without the volunteers, Kenya will not improve her nutrition, maternal and child health indicators.

“The CHVs boost maternal and child health by sensitizing mothers on the need for good nutrition during pregnancy and once the child is born,” she added.

The volunteers will be trained by the national government but will be compensated by the counties and each will be paid a token of Shs. 2,000 every month whereby they will serve in their own villages.
