Equity Group Foundation (EGF), through its health pillar, opened seven, fully equipped Equity Afia medical centres to increase health coverage and address the rising demand for healthcare services across the country.
This expansion aims to address the growing demand for quality healthcare in these communities and increase overall health coverage across the country.
The new centres are located in Migori, Nyamira, Busia, Bomet, Mpeketoni, Iten, and Kwale, aiming to bridge the gap in healthcare access between urban and rural areas.
This brings the total number of Equity Afia centres to 102, with an ambitious goal of reaching 1,000 centres across East and Central Africa by 2030.
Each Equity Afia centre is staffed by qualified medical professionals, including doctors, nurses, and technicians, ensuring high-quality care.
The Equity Afia franchise, founded in 2015, focuses on increasing access to affordable and high-quality health services across the country in urban and rural locations, bridging the inequality gap in the provision of health services.
The facilities provide a wide range of outpatient services, including medical consultation, laboratory, ultrasound, X-ray, pharmacy, dental, optical, mother-and-childcare, and chronic disease management programs.
Aligned with the government’s vision of Universal Health Coverage (UHC), penetrating underserved communities across the country will see increased access to treatment, timely consultation, and a higher emphasis on a preventative and promotional approach focused on nutrition and lifestyle management with timely treatment when needed.
