Security Guard by Day, Health Worker in Training and Practice – Jane’s Story

by Amref Health Africa

Many unsung heroes are making a difference in their community, particularly during the era of the COVID-19 pandemic. Twenty-six-year-old Jane Njeri Kagwiria Kubai is one such individual. She wears many hats; she is a security guard, a frontline health worker, a student and a mother based in Nyeri County.

She works hard as a security guard so at to fulfil her dreams of being a health worker. A single mother of a six-year-old boy (her greatest inspiration) Jane is an early bird, waking up at 3 AM every day to catch the worm.

European Union (EU) funded COVID-19 Response Programme, Amref Health Africa is supporting nine-county governments to enhance human resource capacity to respond to the disease. Frontline health workers remain a lifeline in ensuring effective COVID-19 prevention, screening, diagnosis and management as well as the effective resolution of emerging issues.
