- Immunization Coverage
- Latrine Coverage
- Various Diseases e.g. Tuberculosis (TB) and Malaria
The County employed the community engagement approach to deal with the gaps in Universal Health Care access. This involves the mobilization of the community which involves electing/selecting volunteers to sensitize them on the strategy and further training them on the basic health modules.
