57 people die in Kenya every hour.

With a working emergency healthcare system, this number could potentially be reduced by half.

We are an NGO supporting governments and emergency healthcare providers across Kenya to save lives by strengthening the emergency healthcare system through capacity building, knowledge development, advocacy and research.

Emergency medical care involves:





Emergency Department

Everything you need to save a life from first aid, emergency numbers and how to get help when you need it.
