Training Community Health Volunteers in Nairobi, Kenya

The CureCervicalCancer team has arrived in Nairobi, Kenya! On Friday, we trained 25 community health volunteers in cervical cancer prevention information and equipped them with educational materials. The community heath volunteers are non-medical professionals who are linked to specific communities and health facilities and work closely with the government and NGOs. They are essential in educating community members about “See & Treat” who otherwise might not be aware of the value or availability of screening services. Next week, the Community Health Volunteers will promote CureCervicalCancer’s free screening and treatment services and invite hundreds of women to participate. After our screening week, they will continue to educate the community about cervical cancer prevention and direct them to seek services at the facilities which we are training.
