The health status of people in the community is relatively low and their knowledge about basic health care is limited.  As there is only one government health facility in the area,  accessing treatment is sometimes difficult.  Health can be improved significantly through community-based awareness creation around disease transmission through water, poor hygiene and waste disposal, as well as through the training of health workers for each of the neighborhoods within the group ranch. In 2007, there was  HIV/Aids intervention program that was supported by ICA-Canada where HIV/Aids awareness was created and over 90% were tested of HIV/Aids.
