Planned Goals and Milestones

In Kenya alone there are 1.32 million new births every year. Totohealth’s ultimate goal is to enroll mothers throughout Kenya, the East African region and the rest of the continent. The intention is to partner with the local government and other strategic partners and create a network that can be leveraged on to spread. Future plans include setting up of Early Detection Clinics (including mobile clinics) that would enable the platform to even better to detect developmental abnormalities.
