Around 60% of urban Kenyans live in slums. Here, healthcare options are inconvenient, unreliable, with appealing options as unaffordable. Residents in the slums choose between crowded, under-resourced facilities and informal chemists, who sell pills but not healthcare. The drugs that residents purchase from these unregulated, under-qualified chemists often are counterfeit or expired.
We are customizing a solution that speaks directly to this market. By setting up micro-clinics directly into slums between fruit sellers and homes, we make care convenient and through our training and customer care program, we make it a lot more friendly and comfortable.
We are raising funds to expand our work through additional field-based sites including employer health points for informal workers and chronic care management groups. We are also raising money to support our third site.
