Healthcare is key to SHOFCO’s holistic approach to help build empowered, healthy generations. We know that through reliable medical treatment, infants have a higher chance of normal neurocognitive development; children experience increased years of schooling, and adults decrease missed wages due to illness.
Our services include primary health and preventative care, pre and postpartum care, child immunizations, comprehensive HIV care, family planning, cervical cancer screening, gender-based violence response, and a child nutrition program.
We currently have six health clinics serving Kibera and Mathare. In 2020, we served 17,997 people through our health clinics, offering primary health care services only during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of you, more urban slum dwellers are accessing high-quality healthcare services.
