An interactive source of disease prevention information for local residents at health treatment centers.
CHEs staff the Disease Prevention Center located at the Rorya District Hospital. Four days a week, during hospital visiting times, CHEs are available to answer visitor and patient questions about disease prevention. The Center also provides previously non-existent disease prevention initiatives to help residents create healthy habits.
Currently, CHEs assist 35-50 visitors a week at the hospital. Residents from a larger geographical area are now enjoying WASH benefits and reducing the likelihood of expensive medical treatment in the future.
