Good news at The Rock
Village Health Team members sign up at The Rock

Lots of good news at The Rock in February with the successful hosting of their first Village Health Team (VHT) meeting and the graduation as an Enrolled Comprehensive Nurse for Zahara.

On February 19th, the local parish VHT members were hosted at The Rock to introduce them to the facility and staff. There are 15 villages within the parish and each village has at least 1 VHT member which is a voluntary role. We were delighted that 17 members attended the meeting, some walking over 5 miles to get there. This will lead to greater involvement with the local community.

An agreement was signed with PACE Uganda on the same day. PACE will provide Family Planning services based at The Rock - including community and staff training as well as counselling and support.


Finally BIG smiles all round as Zahara received news of her official graduation as an Enrolled Comprehensive Nurse.
