Having completed their training today (5th September, 2016) at the ICOBI Offices in Kabwohe, Sheema, Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs) have been commissioned and are to begin Conducting HIV Testing & Counselling (HTC)in 32 parishes of Sheema & near by Parishes.
65 in number, the CHEWs received skills of conducting HTC, kits,gloves, biohazard bags, lancets and t-shirts. The program is to last 6 months beginning September 2016. A previous stint of the CHEWs project conducted HTC on 41,600 people with 60 CHEWs. We hope this new stint will hit our target of 50,000.
