This social enterprise runs a chain of micro-clinics across Nairobi’s informal settlements together with a “Healthy Schools” program. Both allow healthcare for the people who need it most, children and the very poor. The health system in Nairobi is often too expensive for many to access otherwise, and the services provided by Access Afya are priced to be affordable, while the school program delivers check-ups, treatments and training. Six schools are currently enrolled in the program, according to Access Afya’s blog, and a new health care package is being launched that includes:
free medications and lab tests
regular doctor’s visits during deworming sessions at schools
a health club membership
a comprehensive check-up at the beginning of every term
extended hospital-stay insurance and fire insurance (fires are common in informal settlements)
