All of the Community Health Workers receive new polo shirts

The Malteser International Community Health Workers in Nairobi are now easily identifiable thanks to a generous donation from the West of Scotland Companions of the Order of Malta. They provided us with the funds to have polo shirts designed and printed in Nairobi.

The Community Health Workers are the vital key to the success of the Malteser International Tuberculosis programme in Nairobi and it is therefore very important that they can be easily identified by people in the community who may need their help.

The Community Health Workers spend their days out and about in the slum communities in which they live and work in order to spread the message about the symptoms and treatment of TB. No longer does TB need to be a killer disease. If it is diagnosed early and treatment begins with delay the patients can and do recover.

Aside from being easily identified by the community, the polo shirts all give a feeling of pride and motivation to the Community Health Workers.
