Community Health Workers often serve the most vulnerable populations in the hardest to reach communities. In Uganda, Malaria Consortium has trained over 7,000 Community Health Workers, known as Village Health Team (VHT) volunteers. Solomon Spaya is one of them.
To celebrate these often unpaid, lifesaving members of the community, we are sharing with you the story of one volunteer health worker in rural Uganda. Share Solomon’s story and help us to raise awareness of the critical work that people like Solomon undertake and the challenges that they overcome in order to deliver life-saving health care and health education around the world.
