We recently conducted a community diagnosis at Kibera Sub County where we visited a few villages in kibera led by Community Health Worker Adoyo Peter Of Kibera Sub County.
The data collected at the activity was based on 5 key areas which are risk behaviors responsible for putting teenagers later in life at high risk position of contacting non communicable diseases.
The risk factors we looked at included
- Harmful use of tobacco
- Harmful use of alcohol
- Risky sexual behaviors
- Physical inactivity
- Unhealthy diets.

- We used questionnaires to collect data from the residents of the villages we visited.
- The method of questionnaire administration was random sampling.
- We also collected data from key informants including teachers, hospital workers and community health workers.
- SILANGA VILLAGE
- MAKINA VILLAGE
- LINDI VILLAGE
- KISUMU NDOGO VILLAGE
- KAMBI MURUU VILLAGE
We administered questionnaires to 10 people per village per key topics covered.
DEDUCTIONS FROM THE COMMUNITY DIAGNOSIS.
(A DETAILED IMPLEMENTATION REPORT ON THIS PROJECT IS AVAILABLE)
- We deduced that all the 5 risky behaviour components were very key towards putting the youths at risk of risk of developing non communicable diseases in the future and have since developed an implementation programme and strategy that would be used to curb the problem.
