MFH in Kenya
Kenya is severely affected by HIV/AIDS. According to the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), over 1.6 million Kenyans live with HIV/AIDS. HIV and AIDS in Kenya account for an estimated 20% of maternal mortality and 15% of deaths of children under the age of five (National AIDS Control Program, 2016).
The partnership between Medicines for Humanity and Children of God Relief Institute (COGRI) focuses on mitigating the impact of HIV/AIDS and decreasing the risk of HIV transmission by implementing a comprehensive package of health services in clinics and preventive health education in homes. This project aims to contribute to a 5% decrease in the proportion of deaths among HIV positive children in Nairobi.
