We are proud to be partnering with Busia County, Kenya, in the electronic Community Health System (eCHIS) scale in alignment with the broader National government’s momentum.
With support from the Ministry of Health (MoH), Living Goods has successfully trained 11 Trainers of Trainers (ToTs) in Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) and sensitized and scaled this training to over 300 Community Health Promoters (CHPs) in Matayos and Malaba, totalling 1100 CHPs.
Busia was the first county to deploy digital at scale for service delivery at the community level in 2015 with support from Living Goods. It has been marked by significant progress and invaluable lessons contributing to policy and practice. Especially, the recognition that digital technology is an enabler in enhancing community health but with support with consistent training, equipping CHPs with essential commodities and compensation.
The county government of Busia has committed funds towards the stipend payment of CHPs in the fiscal year 2023/24. Additionally, the County is actively collaborating with partners to strengthen the supply chain to ensure a consistent provision of commodities to support CHPs.
The county appreciates the significant positive outcomes achieved in various areas through its partnership with Living Goods, such as an increase in immunization rates and hospital deliveries.
