Mobile Medical Clinics
Many Kenyans die every year of easily curable diseases because they don’t have health services within their reach. Mobile clinics provide a means for treating these people regardless of how far they may live from a health center.
Our mobile medical clinics provide quality health care to the uninsured, low income workers, and herders who travel from one village to another in search of water and pasture for their livestock in northern Kenya. Our primary goals include:
* The provision of free or low-cost medical care in a respectful, competent, culturally sensitive and compassionate manner
* Improved general health through both preventative and curative measures, especially for children
* Improved maternal health
* Patient education toward self-directed health management
* A decrease in the need for emergency medical care
We serve approximately 7,000 people annually with the help of our dedicated staff and volunteers. Many of our patients suffer from multiple ailments includidng HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, typhoid, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, hepatitis, parasites, asthma, allergies, orthopedic disabilities or cancer. Some of these patients have never seen a doctor. All struggle with the reality of a community whose need for quality health care exceeds its capacity to deliver. CGA is working hard to combat this healthcare shortage and, with the generous help of its supporters, it has made great progress in doing so.
