Abstract

Community health workers (CHW) in rural Kenya have great influence in their society and the potential to affect positive change in community health, yet their training is largely inconsistent and their community role is not well understood. This study explores the role of CHW and considers their ability to operate a telemedicine system designed by the Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship (HESE) Program at Penn State.
