Since February 2015, we have been extraordinarily fortunate to have received a five year grant from the European Union, as part of eight separate public health proposals around the world funded by the European Union: Supporting Public Health Institutes: Investing in People. Our proposal is called “Supporting Kwale County Government through the provision of Integrated Medicine.” Our major partner in this project is the Ministry of Health, Kwale County and together we are seeking to improve health care outcomes in the County through improving health information systems, supporting the implementation of existing health policy and by introducing an Integrated Medicine approach in the county. Furthermore we are seeking to make policy change at a national level so that the Kenyan healthcare system can include the best of proven Traditional and Alternative medicines.
We have also been embarking on a number of operational researches into the viability of a more integrated healthcare approach in the county.
As the EU grant finishes in January 2020, we will be having to support our school through tuition and also by some supporting grants in order for us to continue to provide the services for the community. Please consider supporting our work and continuing the support that the EU has been able to give us.
