Health Care

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.

SHOFCO runs six health clinics in Kibera and Mathare and partners with an additional nine healthcare facilities. In 2023, 156,098 children were reached with nutrition screenings and an additional 40,213 mothers were reached with our maternal and child health and nutrition services.
