“Since we got onboard EGF’s healthcare service in 2017, we have witnessed tremendous improvement in the health of our staff members. This is because they receive high quality treatment and medication. Another notable change is on the medical bills which have significantly gone down due to the friendly and affordable cost of health care in your facility. Of importance to note is the proximity of your health care centres to our staff members and their families. And not forgetting your friendly staff.”
Karen Ndiema from Ongata Rongai believes that health care attendants should have the required skills in order to effectively treat patients. This is a key consideration for her when deciding what health facility to visit. She likes the general experience in Equity Afia but more specifically the fact that clinical staff spend sufficient time with the clients. She says ‘’After lab tests, the doctors discuss results with you- I have not seen this anywhere else. Doctors advise you on the results,one item after another- detailed information! This is the one thing that stands out for Equity Afia’’
When he was selected as a beneficiary of the Equity Leaders Program, Dr. Anthony Kinyanjui did not know what the future held for him apart from having his education fee catered for. Currenly, Dr Kinyanjui is one of the beneficiaries trained as medical doctors who are now entrepreneurs in the health care sector through Equity Afia. He says,” This initiative has given me an opportunity to transform the lives of Kenyans through the provision of high quality and affordable healthcare. Equity Afia manages both curative and preventative healthcare services and we are now increasingly emphasizing on preventive care services”, says Dr Kinyanjui.
