Increasing access to primary health care services through Community Health Workers (CHWs)
Wayo Wayo Kibra Health is committed to improving access to health services by expanding the implementation of CHW programs. Our goal is to improve sustainability and create career pathways for youth in sub-Sahara Africa, beginning in Kibera/Nairobi.
WWK Health focuses on building financial sustainability in the current CHW Service Model. Our mission is to recruit both women and men to participate in the CHW program located throughout the Kibera Slum. Through our work and partnerships we hope to expand health care throughout the community and provide jobs to the unemployed.
