A Diploma Course gives a student knowledge required to pursue further studies in their field of specialization as well as join the job market and gain skills necessary for professional growth.

For your information, owning a pharmacy in Kenya will be a blessing to you since it’s one of the most profitable businesses in the country.

Diploma in Community Health and HIV/AIDS Management may look useless for someone who lacks knowledge of what it entails.HIV/AIDS was declared a national disaster when it spread like bush fire in early 2000.Its prevalence caught the attention of the Government and International community, as a result, the government built several training institutions as well as NGOs to sensitize the population against the deadly disease. There are over 100 NGOs in Kenya which work with communities in reducing HIV prevalence cases and over 20 government institutions which support HIV victims and sensitize communities on the same. These institutions require personnel, who are scarce, if you fail to pursue the course, who will work in these institutions?
