A nonprofit organisation supporting emergency healthcare providers across Kenya to save lives through Capacity Building, Knowledge Development, Advocacy and Research.
Nairobi Kenya, 2nd December 2022: Today, Mbagathi Hospital, a leading healthcare provider in Kibra Constituency for more than 60 years and widely regarded as a place of hope and healing, serving a diverse population, and providing emergency medical care to over 600 patients daily, unveiled their newly refurbished and equipped Emergency Department. The project, done in partnership with the Emergency Medicine Kenya Foundation (EMKF), will serve a vital purpose in providing emergency medical care in line with the hospital’s mission of providing quality, affordable and accessible specialised healthcare in the Nairobi Metropolis. The equipment , an oxygen gas manifold with nine oxygen gas delivery points and six vital sign monitors are key to the delivery of quality emergency medical care at the facility. EMKF also facilitated tailored training for the emergency department team to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to respond confidently to emergencies and deliver safe, evidence-based quality emergency medical care to critically ill and injured patients.
The Emergency Medicine Kenya Foundation (EMKF) in collaboration with Malteser International (MI) and the County Government of Turkana developed the first Turkana County Emergency Medical Care (EMC) Plan which was launched on Mar 11, 2022.
