Following the launch of the community health program and distribution of Community Health Promoters (CHP) kits nationwide last year, the County Government of Nandi, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health – Division of Community Health, recognized and awarded the best-performing community health unit in the county.

A community health unit is the basic health service delivery structure within a defined geographic area, covering a population of approximately 5,000 people. It is served by CHPs, who are supervised by a Community Health Assistant (CHA). CHPs act as the link between community members and the health system, providing preventive and promotive health services.

Kaptumo/Kaboi Ward in Aldai Sub County, lies Kaboi Community Health Unit (CHU), a beacon of excellence in community health in 2023. In a ceremony presided over by the Chief Officer for Health and Sanitation Fredrick Kiptum, Kaboi Community Health Unit was recognized as the best-performing CHU in Nandi County.

Kaboi Community Health Unit’s success is linked to the CHA and CHP’s proactiveness and dedication.

The County Government of Nandi recognizes the importance of a well-equipped and motivated community health workforce. The Department of Health and Sanitation will continue its efforts to advocate for fair remuneration, digitization, and institutionalization, striving for a future where every CHP feels valued and empowered.

Kaboi Community Health Unit is about a community united by a passion for health and a commitment to making a difference. Their journey serves as an inspiration, proving that dedication and a little support can lead to remarkable achievements, one household visit at a time.
