A health worker in Asat, Kenya
A photo story
Odhiambo Ochieng has worked as a nurse in Kenya for 24 years. He works at a local dispensary and also trains community health workers, a key way to expand health services as recommended by WHO.
When Dorine’s six-month-old son Randy was coughing, feverish and had some stiffness, she was relieved that she could take her son to Celestine, a local CHW, when the dispensary was closed. Motivated by Celestine’s work, Dorine says she wants to become a CHW herself.
WHO would like to thank the Kisumu County Government for the support received in producing this photo story.
