The Nation’s President promotes a working culture, which can only be realized through a healthy nation. A healthy population could be achieved if there is quality health services and secure food and nutrition.

ADSMKE Community Health programme was started in 1980, using the primary health care approach. The main activities were:-

  • Training of (CHWs) Community Health Workers
  • Mobile clinics, and
  • Establishment and training of village health committees

Currently, ADSMKE continues the approach and a major result is the establishment of numerous Community dispensaries and static curative health services (inpatient and outpatient) that include one Hospital(ACK Mt. Kenya Hospital in Kerugoya), two health centres(Tumaini health centre in Marsabit and Tumaini health centre Isiolo) and 5 static dispensaries(ACK Mt. Kenya Kerugoya Satellite Clinic, Wanguru, Mayori, Mitunguu and Maua). The way forward is to network with the public sector, donors and development partners in further equipping the health services, make them affordable and accessible to the poor and vulnerable groups. We also intend to scale up the PHC programme by linking HIV/AIDS and gender issues.
