Wamatangi promises to improve Community Health Volunteers welfare

Community Health Volunteers in Kiambu County will soon start receiving a monthly stipend after Governor Kimani Wamatangi promised to enact a bill into law to improve their welfare.

Speaking in Lari Sub County after receiving Glaucoma eye screening machines from Christian Blind Mission, Wamatangi urged MCA’S to fast track the amendment of the bill that will improve their welfare within the County.

Wamatangi said the role of Community Health Volunteers boosts the health sector where non communicable diseases are detected in early stages before the patient is admitted in the hospital where congestion in the health facilities can become the thing of the past.

Kijabe Ward MCA Nyutu Wamwere said Community Health Volunteers bill is at the final stage where he said after the Assembly resumes the sittings, MCA’S will pass it into to law which will enable the Governor have smooth running of the health sector back from the villages before patients reach health facilities.

Governor Kimani Wamatangi and MCA’S Nyutu Wamwere said the awareness campaign led CHVs members will reduce early blindness that can be treated if detected before the situation worsens.
