PRIMARY HEALTHCARE (past project)

Bringing Health Services to the Poor

Our aim is to support the provision of high quality primary health care (PHC).

Effective primary health care is particularly important in developing countries. It has a relatively low cost and high impact when compared to curative and hospital based medicine. Effective delivery of vaccinations, maternal care and treatment of common diseases (such as malaria) is essential for the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals. Effective diagnostic triage and delivery of chronic care is essential for the provision of universal health care at affordable cost. Together these components support the poor to achieve good health and climb out of poverty.

At the heart of Poor Communities

At present we have three medical centres in Kenya. They are located in semi-rual areas providing local schools and and villages with quality healthcare services.
