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.

Easing the Pressure

When Charles Waweru, a community health volunteer received a call informing him that his wife had collapsed at work, he could not have imagined the cause to be hypertension. So when he received an invitation [some years later] from Jhpiego to be trained on hypertension through the Healthy Heart Africa (HHA) program, he did not hesitate to attend. While high blood pressure is a fairly common condition, often the warning signs—headaches and dizziness—are overlooked or mistaken as symptoms of other ailments.

In Kenya, Encouraging Breastfeeding at the Community Level is Saving Lives

What helps save the lives of about 800,000 babies every year and doesn’t cost a dime? Breastfeeding. Of all preventive health interventions, breastfeeding—done within the first hour of life, exclusively for the first six months, and until age two—has the greatest potential impact on child survival, with the ability to avert 13% of deaths in children under five in the developing world.
