About Me: 

I am a community health worker.My work involves identifying people and especially women and children in need of medicare, providing home based care services to them and where necessary, do referrals. I deal with community health and therefore love to see people in good health. Promoting access to quality health by women and children is my passion. I have seen many women and children affected by the HIV/AIDS scourge. I make sure that I do the best to improve the lives of these people. Men are not excluded but I put more emphasis on women and children and more so because they are viewed as the weak by the society.

My Passions: 
Learning new ideas, Put the ideas learnt into practice
My Challenges: 
Lack of appreciation for services offered
My Vision for the Future: 
A world where women will not be viewed as lesser beings especially in Africa
My Areas of Expertise: 
Community health
My Languages: 
English, Swahili
