In Nairobi, Kenya, many low-income individuals have little to no access to proper and affordable medical care in heavily populated urban and peri-urban Nairobi, Kenya. Typically, medical care is sought at government clinics, private “mom and pop” clinics, or low-quality chemists/pharmacies that often exploit patients and provide them with ineffective, high-cost care that does not adequately treat their chief complaints.
Penda offers consistent accessibility, affordability, friendly and non-judgmental staff, high-quality medical care, and primary healthcare services. Penda focuses particularly on maternal and child health – from patients who are women of reproductive age to the children they give birth to – and on delivering preventative healthcare to families. Currently, Penda provides affordable, high-quality primary healthcare services for the whole family at our 14 walk-in medical centers.
Based full-time in Nairobi, Penda is run by a team of executives from both the United States and Kenya who are experienced in both the public and private sectors – in areas ranging from operations, to recruiting, to systems, to patient experience, to medical center performance, to fundraising, to investor relations.
