The Kayole-Soweto Villages in the Embakasi division around Nairobi have an estimated population of more than 798,000. The majority of people living here earn less than a dollar a day.
These villages in the slum areas around Nairobi have long been used as a dumping site of all sorts of garbage which has contributed to the spread of disease in the community. Malaria, Typhoid, Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS all pose major threats to the livelihood of the community as a whole.
ARROW KENYA was established as a Non-Profit making Organization whose main priority is to help the community in tackle these and other health problems in their lives by offering curative and preventive health services at Arrow-Web Hospital. The hospital has 11 beds for inpatients and sees between 110-150 patients per week depending on the weather.
The main priority areas of focus are:
1. Primary Health Care
2. HIV/AIDS Mitigation
3. Family Planning
4. Ant-Natal care program
5. PMTCT PROGRAM-Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission
Our project here on better place will focus on the sustainable development of the hospital and existing hospital programs as well as services aimed at community development in order to begin addressing the root causes of disease and poor health in the area.
