Community stakeholders in Obunga praise Community Health Initiative

With local Obunga leadership collaboration, the Community Health Initiative (CHI) was able to effectively mobilize and implement community health campaigns across the informal settlement in Kisumu County.  CHI recently held a community stakeholder meeting on August 30th to appreciate community member support and garner feedback.  

Stakeholders overwhelmingly appreciated the program, especially the community health campaigns where free multi-disease services, referrals, and linkages, were available. The Area Chief commented that “many organizations have come to Obunga with different projects, but CHI was unique." The community appreciated CHI’s approach of using established community structures, hiring local community members for mobilizing, as guides, and for tent assembly and security. They were also grateful that the entire community was able to access health services during the community health campaigns.
