As Kenya continues to fight COVID-19 , the senate is now  pushing for Community Health workers Bill  geared towards catering for the welfare of community health volunteers  who have now become  champions  in the fight against  Coronavirus at community level.

In an Interview with Ghetto Radio News , the bill Sponsor  senator  Agnes Zani says the  bill provides a proper frame work to  county governments on how best  they can actually remunerate community health workers  as they play a key role in our  communities.

‘‘The bill is at the advanced stages and we are currently receiving memorandums from different stakeholders.The bill is also focusing on the best ways  CHVs   can be hired be it through barazas  or even communal  identity.’’Zani said.

He further rallied her fellow senators to give the bill correct political stab saying  it will benefit  counties and communities  at large.

‘‘We  discussed it last year  and we all agree that it is a good one, community health volunteers is our direct link with the community. We  must protect them  and that can only be done through lawful structures,’’ she added.
