Introduction

The Faculty of Science at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa was established in the Academic year 2003-2004 with the aim of meeting the ever- growing challenges of developments in African countries which have yearned for different cadres of scientists who can contribute to the development of their continent.The Faculty has continued its agenda of training professionals who need to be concerned about technology, communities increase in poverty, escalating health care costs, diminishing access of care, increase in gender workload imbalance, inadequate food availability and increase in violence and insecurity. The impact on these trends hit the poorest and marginalized disproportionately in a context which increasingly globalizes as their situations go through the experience of massive traumatic transition that has been achieved through practical training of our graduates in community service practice and field attachment component in various institutions.

Key Achievements

Community Health and Development

The department has continued to promote her agenda of training health professional who need to be concerned beyond technology but with the communities’ increasing poverty situation, escalating health care costs, diminishing access of care, increasing gender workload imbalances. inadequate food availability, increasing violence and insecurity. The impact of these trends hit the poorest and marginalized disproportionately, in a context which is increasingly globalizing as their situations go through the experience of massive traumatic transition. These has been achieved through practical training of our graduate in community service practice and field attachment component in various institutions.

Uniqueness of the Community Health and Development Programme

New and robust models are needed to change the trends of development. For the needed paradigm shift a new cadre of personnel are required, trained in the practice of public health not only by academicians but also by professional practitioners as well as stakeholders. The new approach heavily relies on skills and cannot be adequately developed among learners in the classroom. A practical hands-on approach is vital, which makes our programme unique. Needless to stress that health improvement demands the inputs of variety disciplines.

As such we have established MOUs with such institutions as well as public sector i.e. Kajiado County – Ministry of Health, Langata Sub-County, Kuwinda Village, Good Samaritan Rehabilitation Centre.

The Bachelors Programme has been reviewed by the CUE and comments given, the document has been updated so far, only site inspection for approval of the same

Collaborations

  •  Community Health and Development

The following are some of our collaborators:

  1. Other departments with the faculty of Science
  2. Ministry of Health – Kajiado County, Langata Sub-County

Community Service:

  •  Community Health and Development

The department has been visible at the centre of community service through representing the faculty of science in the 2018 community service week, which has been our continual engagement. These enabled the department to create a sygenetic partnership with the community- Kuwinda Village and we are on the process of formalizing our partnership as a learning site.
