Kenya

Jhpiego is dedicated to saving and transforming the lives of women and children throughout Kenya.

 

Jhpiego is working to prevent the needless deaths of women, girls and their families by making health services in Kenya the very best they can be. We have formed great partnerships with the government's Ministry of Health, doctors, community health workers and health systems managers. Together, we implement many lifesaving projects that are saving thousands of lives.
