Equity Group has opened seven new Equity Afia medical centers in a move to increase health coverage and address the rising demand for healthcare services across the country.

The latest additions are medical doctor-run facilities located in Migori town, Nyamira town, Busia town, Bomet town, Mpeketoni town, Iten town, and Kwale town.

Aligned with the Government’s vision of Universal Health Coverage (UHC), penetrating underserved communities across the country will see increased access to treatment, timely consultation and higher emphasis on a preventative and promotive approach focused on nutrition and lifestyle management with timely treatment when needed.

The facilities are managed by a team of qualified and highly skilled staff comprising medical officers, nurses, clinical officers, and pharmaceutical and laboratory technologists whose clinical management is supported by state-of-the-art laboratory and diagnostic equipment to ensure that curative and preventive services are offered at the highest standards.
