DCM participates in the implementation of Community Health Strategy (CHS) which seeks to improve access to health care service delivery through Comprehensive Primary Health Care. The program contributes to the 2017 national goal of reducing malaria morbidity and mortality in the various epidemiological zones by two thirds based on 2007/08 baseline survey. We are implementing this under Global Fund Malaria where we are a sub recipient of AMREF Kenya. We implement these activities in partnership with County Health Management Teams of Homa Bay, Kitui, Baringo, Murang’a and Mombasa Counties.

The Activities involve: Community Case Management of Malaria, Support operations of CUs, Link Facility Support Supervision, Health Facility Support Supervision, Data Quality Audit, Training of the CHWs on Community Case Management, and Training of the CHEWs as the TOTs for Community Health Strategy. The project also empowers the households and communities to take an active role in prevention and reduction of malaria.

 

2. Orphans and Vulnerable Children

DCM promotes the rights of Orphans and Vulnerable Children by:
Facilitating access to Spiritual & quality healthcare services;
Increasing access to basic education and socio-economic empowerment of the OVC based households. DCM employs integrated home based approach which ensures capacity building and community participation.

 

3. Developmental Disability

The purpose of the program is "To Build a Community of Excellence" by incorporating and accommodating persons with developmental/intellectual disabilities in the community. The program develops community-integrated system of supports for such persons. This is achieved through: promotion of employment and job support for young adults with disabilities. Such support includes education for children with developmental and intellectual disabilities; promotion of access to health care; establishment of Social enterprise initiative through provision of Microloans; community awareness and advocacy
