Community Health Volunteers (CHV) Virhembe is a community-based organization established in 2006 by Kenyan volunteers operating within Kakamega East District. The organization is situated at Virhembe Market and focuses on fighting HIV/AIDS and other health issues. The mission of this CHV is to spearhead implementation of community health and conservation projects in order to create a better life for communities in Western Kenya.

The organization pursues the aim of expanding capacities of the community in regards to dealing with HIV/AIDS. It seeks to design and implement quality HIV/AIDS interventions, as well as to support people living with HIV/AIDS by increasing access and improving the quality of healthcare and referral services for them through increased linkages with the Ministry of Health. The group also aims to promote safe sexual behavior and practice among youth and vulnerable groups. Community Health Volunteers in collaboration with DANIDA built a community hospital that is providing access to health in the entire area around the Kakamega rain forest. The hospital had words, clinician consultation rooms, laboratory pharmacy and delivery room. The hospital has both paid staff and volunteers to provide medical services to patients.
