Giving Oxygen to COVID-19 Patients in Kenya

As the COVID‐19 pandemic continues to unfold here in Kenya, more and more patients are requiring oxygen. To increase the capacity of healthcare facilities to provide oxygen to more patients, we have installed Oxygen Gas Manifolds in the emergency departments at the county referral hospitals in Machakos, Kiambu (COVID-19 isolation centre) and Kajiado counties and at the Alupe Sub-County Hospital COVID-19 isolation centre in Busia county. These are the hardest hit counties at the moment and we continue to seek additional support to support more facilities.

COVID-19 Preparedness

Quality Emergency and Critical Care services are crucial to saving lives in the current COVID-19 pandemic here in Kenya. Strengthening these services across the country will not only save us now but even when the pandemic is over because, emergencies always happen, regardless of whether we are prepared or not.
