Health Worker Training
We strengthen health systems in a way that's sustainable by building the capacity of health workers at all levels: community health workers, clinical officers, nurses, midwives, and more.
Voices: hear from some of the health workers we support.
Catherine Aanyu, midwife
Catherine Aanyu is a 26-year-old midwife from Katakwi, a small town in Eastern Uganda. She's currently building her skills through Amref Health Africa's eLearning programme.
Violet Boonabana, midwife
Violet Boonabana was raised by her aunt, a midwife, in Kampala. Growing up, Violet would admire the way her aunt cared for the women in their community. "She made me love and respect the profession," she says. "She showed me how rewarding it is to watch a mother leave the hospital with a healthy, happy baby."
Margaret Kilonzo, Community Health Worker
In March 2021, Amref Health Africa hosted a virtual event to give supporters a window into our work. The star of the show was Margaret Kilonzo, a Community Health Worker (CHW), who was born, raised and continues to work in Kibera, Nairobi: Africa’s largest informal settlement.
Jemimah Makau, midwife
Jemimah has been a midwife at Emali Model hospital in Makueni County, Kenya, since 2011. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way women in Makueni have deliveries, and Jemimah fears for the women in her community.
