TropicalClinics Pharmacy and Treatment Center at Kakamega

TropicalClinics organization is establishing TropicalClinics Medical and Education Center to provide vital, life-saving medical care to women, children and their families in Africa, starting in Kenya.

Our immediate goal is to renovate an existing five-room clinic at Kakamega into a pharmacy and treatment center that will provide interim services to our clients. From this service we expect to demonstrate the project’s soundness and effectiveness to other foundations and corporate funders, community development agencies, and private funding sources for future funding of the long-term program. The treatment center plans to provide prenatal care to women like Muhonja to assist with healthy pregnancies and prevent pregnancy-related deaths.

Clinics in these rural areas lack many supplies such as stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, bandages, syringes, disinfectants, thermometers, antibiotics and ibuprofen which are readily available in any clinic or hospital in the United States. TropicalClinics is partnering with MAP International and Johnson & Johnson to ship a container of medicine and medical supplies to the proposed Pharmacy in Kakamega. We plan to set up a computer system to track medical cases, treatment impact, and TropicalClinics’ services.

TropicalClinics program at the Pharmacy and treatment center will enable our stakeholders to better understand the current needs in the area; build sound and effective care of our patient pool and demonstrate the effectiveness of our long-term program through internal and external audit.

Looking to the Future...

Our long-term plans (targeted for operation in 2012) include the construction of an 80-bed clinic in Kakamega, Africa. This health & healing center will integrate conventional medicine with other therapies for a more comprehensive approach to healing. Once complete, this facility will provide:

  • comprehensive and integrated HIV-care to women and children
  • essential obstetric care and health care to abused women
  • state-of-art diagnostic tools and biotechnology center for traditional medicine
