An interactive source of disease prevention information for local residents at health treatment centers.
Maji Safi Group’s Community Health Educators (CHEs) staff the Disease Prevention Centers located at several health centers in the Rorya District. These include the Shirati KMT Hospital, Masonga Dispensary, Rao Hospital and Ngasaro Clinic. Four days a week, during hospital visiting hours, our CHEs are available to answer visitor and patient questions about disease prevention. The Centers also provide previously non-existent disease prevention initiatives to help residents create healthy habits.
Currently, CHEs assist 35-50 visitors a week at the health centers. Residents from all over the Rorya District and other areas in the Mara Region are now enjoying WASH benefits and reducing the likelihood of expensive medical treatment in the future.
