STOWELINK WORKS WITH VIHIGA COUNTY TO SUPPORT REOPENING OF 4 NCDS CLINICS.

PSX_20200625_143231.jpgStowelink through the support from NCDs Alliance of Kenya has embarked on a project aimed at Increasing the priority, attention and budget allocation (IPBA) for NCDs at the national and county levels. This project aims at working with people living with NCDS together with the county governments and relevant stakeholders to educate the county on NCDS literacy, to strengthen the people living with NCDS and get them organized into groups. What is more, the project looks forward to forming the Vihiga NCDS county chapter with all stakeholders including people living with NCDS, the youth and the county government. The main aim of the county chapters is to strengthen the voice of people living with NCDS, to get them involved in policy development and to get these groups organized and educated. The young people are also given key priority and active responsibilities in driving this agenda.

CURRENT PROGRESS

In response to COVID 19, most hospitals shifted focus to addressing and treating COVID 19 patients. This instant shift led to the closure of several NCDs clinics and Vihiga county was no different. The reason this happened is partly attributed to the disruption of the supply chain systems which saw a delay in supply of the NCDs diagnostic equipment and medicine. Having worked with the NCDs community in the county, we comprehended that during the COVID 19 era, the NCDs community needed much support especially through keeping the clinics going. In recognition of this need, we responded through this project by supporting 4 NCD clinics in hospitals and health centers across Vihiga county with diagnostic equipment and services. We have been able to work with the county government and currently we support NCDs diagnosis, counseling and care to Vihiga county hospitals and medical facilities.
