This newsletter is about people who help their neighbours
to help themselves. What is the name for these
people? Well, every place seems to have a different
name. Some of the names used in Kenya are Public
Health Aide, Clan Health Worker, Community
Health Worker, and Village Health Helper. ln three
places the name used is the local word for helper:
Atethesia in Kibwezi, Jakony in Saradidi and Athesia
Do you think there mighl be one name which would
be good for all such worked everywhere in Kenya?
Such a name would help us to be United. lt would
also, make the whole country know about our work.
What are your ideas about a single name for people
who work to improve health in their own community or village?
