Reducing Child TB Deaths and Female Cancers 

OUR MISSION

WE HELP PREVENT CANCER & TB MORTALITY

At Community Health Access Program (CHAP) we work with rural, nomadic and remote communities in Northern Kenya to end pediatric TB and female cancers (breast, cervical and lung).
We are passionate about empowering Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) and County-Government health professionals. Together, we facilitate and deliver the essential capacity building and support system that mothers, children, and their families need and deserve
In line with our mission. We strive to intervene and prevent unnecessary deaths which result from lack of education and support through:
  • Awareness creation in the community
  • Capacity Building of Community Health Volunteers
  • Community support for women cancer survivors
  • Livelihood support for women cancer survivors.

CERVICAL CANCER

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix caused by various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection

PEDIATRIC TB

 

Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by bacteria that are spread through the air from person to person. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal, especially in children

LUNG & BREAST CANCER

Lung cancer is a condition that causes cells to divide in the lungs uncontrollably. This causes the growth of tumors that reduce a person's ability to breathe.
