Kenya: Jubilee Health Reaches 5,000 in Week-Long Afya Mashinani Medical Drive in Nakuru

Nairobi — Jubilee Health Insurance’s Afya Mashinani Initiative has concluded its Nakuru medical drive projected to have reached at least 5,000 individuals.

The community-focused program, aimed at extending accessible healthcare services to underserved populations, successfully reached over 5000 individuals, delivering essential medical services, education, and other healthcare support.

During the week-long activation, which included a free medical camp held in partnership with The Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi, a total of over 3000 participants attended, seeking medical consultations, screenings, and health assessments.

The overwhelming response from the community of Naivasha and Nakuru, Jubilee Health noted, showcases the pressing need for accessible and affordable healthcare in the region.

The Afya Mashinani Drive’s impact is further reflected in the numbers: over 1,700 individuals received free medication to address their immediate healthcare needs, while about 1,300 individuals received vital COVID-19 vaccinations, contributing to the ongoing efforts to combat the pandemic and protect the community.

“We are thrilled with the results and impact achieved through the Afya Mashinani Drive,” said Njeri Jomo, CEO of Jubilee Health Insurance.

“Reaching over 5,000 lives and providing free medical services, medication, and COVID-19 vaccinations demonstrates our commitment to improving healthcare access and promoting the well-being of individuals and families in underserved communities.”
