HEALTHCARE: Equity Afia, the medical franchise of Equity Group Foundation, has opened three new medical centres in Kitengela, Ngong and along the Eastern Bypass, bringing its outreach footprint to 23 centres nationally.

Equity Group Foundation Executive director Reuben Mbindu said the organisation is pleased to see alumni of the Equity Leaders Programme (ELP) grow to become medical entrepreneurs driven by the sole purpose of increasing access to quality and affordable healthcare services.

“As Equity Group Foundation, we wish to lessen the burden of healthcare to our people and that is why we are offering increased access to medical services by continuing to grow our  network of Equity Afia outpatient medical centres,” he added.

“Through ELP, we also support and mentor young entrepreneurs within the medical field thus increasing the country’s pool of trained medics.”

The three new medical centres are fully-fledged multi-speciality centres offering outpatient medical care services such as general consultation, specialised clinics, dental, optical, dermatological, paediatric and nutrition services, among others.

With the opening of the three new centres, Equity Afia now has a presence in Nairobi County (9), Kiambu County (6), Kajiado County (3), Nyeri, Nakuru, Kakamega, Meru and Mombasa counties.
