ELEWA in collaboration with ASCO and other partners provide a training course – Cancer Control in Primary Care (CCPC), to primary health care professionals in conjunction with our partners so as to identify early signs/symptoms, provide basic screening services and facilitate early referrals of patients for treatment.
The training targets clinical officers, medical officers and nurses from different counties of Kenya who are usually the first point of contact with patients. So far we have conducted 4 trainings, 3 being in Nairobi attended by healthcare providers from across the country and 1 in Nyeri County with mainly healthcare providers from Nyeri, Meru and Laikipia counties. A total of 130 primary healthcare providers have been trained.
