In commemoration of a decade of dedicated service, Partners for Health and Development in Africa (PHDA) organized two transformative medical camps in the neighborhoods of Kariobangi and Kawangware in Nairobi County. These camps extended healthcare access to the general population, touching the lives of over 500 individuals.

The anniversary initiative highlighted our mission of building healthy communities in Africa and through collaborative efforts of our dedicated clinic staff and the advocacy team of the Sex Workers Outreach Programme (SWOP), we provided essential medical services and support to individuals who often face barriers to healthcare access.

We set up bustling makeshift clinic stations at Dandora Chiefs Camp in Kariobangi and the County CDF offices in Kawangware, where community members sought medical assistance and guidance. The medical camps offered a comprehensive array of services tailored to address the diverse needs of the local population. This included HIV testing and counseling, diabetes testing, and blood pressure screenings. Children also received free checkup diagnoses for common diseases. In addition to these services, invaluable health education was provided to empower individuals with knowledge about maintaining their health and preventing diseases.

We express deep gratitude to the community for their steadfast support and trust. As we look towards the future, PHDA remains resolute in its commitment to ‘Reimagine the Health Equity Agenda for Marginalized populations’ through impactful interventions.
