More than 1,000 people attend first community health campaigns in Obunga


On April 4th and 5th, the FACES Community Health Initiative (CHI) rolled out our community health campaigns (CHCs) in Kisumu County with nearly 1,200 people attending the first 2 CHCs at the Obunga Sports Complex. CHCs offer a convenient way for people to access healthcare services through health fairs right in their own community. CHCs deliver multi-disease health services including HIV testing and counseling; linkage to HIV services; screening and referral for tuberculosis, malaria, hypertension, diabetes, fistula, and cervical cancer; and referrals for voluntary medical male circumcision.

The residents of Obunga will have the opportunity to attend about 40 CHCs held at various venues through mid-June.
