Isaiah Cheptarus, 24, is a mentor to the youth in his village and already a well-respected member of the community. Due to his trusted reputation, Isaiah was nominated by a local council to become the Community Health Worker (CHW) for his village. CHWs are equipped with referral privileges and a basic medical kit, and community members can come at any hour of the day to discuss their health concerns and ailments. When necessary, Isaiah makes referrals to the health clinic, and will often accompany them on the 60-kilometer trip to the clinic if they are unable to make it on their own. Isaiah accepted the position of community health worker with great honor and considers this one of his proudest moments. He now dedicates himself to protecting the health and well-being of his community. HealthRight supports approximately 1,000 CHWs who in turn serve 20,000 households in the North Rift Valley.
