SummaryMiliki Afya is finally the solution to the expansion and availability of Quality and Affordable Healthcare to the bottom of the pyramid in Kenya, Africa and beyond. We believe that quality affordable healthcare is a fundamental right which should be enjoyed by every human being anywhere everywhere
To expand healthcare access to the majority bottom of the pyramid Kenya ultimately guaranteeing quality and affordable healthcare to every Kenyan walking through our network of clinics in Kenya,
Key program components
An estimated 18 million Kenyans are in need of primary healthcare. Private clinics provide nearly half of primary healthcare to the poorest quintile of the population. Of the affordable private clinics, a significant number are run by non-qualified healthcare workers, often posing as certified doctors or nurses. Moreover, they are unable to provide comprehensive diagnostics and rapid treatment in the same facility, resulting in lost time and money in travel to get to alternate facilities.
Miliki Afya Clinics Chain:
Miliki offers cost effective diagnostic and radiological capabilities at the clinical level in order to provide patients a thorough examination in one location, reducing high costs of travel and lost income from time travelling to another facility for care.
Miliki Afya has also secured a unique deal with Mission for Essential Drugs and Supplies (MEDS), a non-profit organisation that works with mission hospitals and NGOs to supply them with drugs at a discounted price. The relationship has allowed the clinic's pharmacies the ability to sell drugs below market price.
Patients receive consultations from qualified doctors for as little as KSH 100 (USD $0.85). A full visit, complete with tests and prescription drugs, averages between KSH 2,000 and KSH 3,000.
