PRIVATE FACILITIES IN DENSELY POPULATED AREAS

Although the County governments have several facilities scattered in their domains, public health facilities are usually overburdened and are supplemented by private health facilities that cater to the market demographics in the area. The pricing of services at these facilities does not necessarily mean exorbitant prices, however there is always room to improve access.

Through AMREF and its relationships, we have recently brought on board Fremo Medical Centre, Mercy Missions Medical Centre and Good Shephard Clinic located in the Kawangware, Dagoretti and Karen areas of Nairobi to carry out free daily screening on their respective patient footfalls with medications available on site. The positive uptake has led to conversations with several other facilities.
