In August, our teams treated people injured during general elections-related violence in Nairobi and Homa Bay. As the year ended, we also responded to sporadic cholera outbreaks, setting up treatment centers and providing training, logistical support, health promotion, and patient care.
We continue to increase access to health care for marginalized youth and adolescents. In Mombasa, we support the provision of comprehensive, youth-friendly medical services in health facilities and communities.
In response to chronic urban violence in Eastlands, a suburb of Nairobi, we offer emergency and sexual and reproductive health care at our youth-friendly clinic, and in four sexual violence clinics integrated in public facilities. We also run an emergency call center and ambulance services in Eastlands.
In Kiambu county, we have expanded access to opioid substitution therapy, comprehensive health care, and psychosocial support for people who use heroin through a one-stop clinic and two other facilities.
In Homa Bay, we support the county referral hospital’s adult medical wards by providing staff, treatment and follow-up, and scaled up treatment for non-communicable diseases in local health facilities. Meanwhile, we handed over our pediatric, adolescent, and advanced HIV treatment activities to local partners.
