Equity Group’s Health Arm Opens Two New Clinics

Equity Afia on Thursday opened two new medical centers in Kakamega and Meru Counties, bringing the total number of clinics within its franchise network to 15 with the organization seeking to expand its footprint in the health business.

According to the organization, the two medical centers are set to target a population of 3.4 million within the two counties.

In Kakamega, the Equity Afia medical centre is located at Walia Business Centre, along the Kisumu-Kakamega Highway; while in Meru, residents can find the Equity Afia medical centre along the Meru-Maua road, near Meru School towards Makutano.

Commenting on the opening of the two facilities, Equity Group Foundation Executive Director, Reuben Mbindu, expressed Equity Afia’s commitment to enabling Kenyans to lead productive lives through providing access to inclusive quality healthcare services.

“We are keen on ensuring that all Kenyans enjoy access to quality medical outpatient and referral services. Our clinics are NHIF accredited and we also accept a large number of insurance cards as well as out of pocket payment. This diversity allows Kenyans from all walks of life to enjoy access to quality treatment with ease and at affordable costs,” said Mr. Mbindu.

Currently, Equity Afia operates 15 medical centres in 7 counties and has plans to venture into other regions as the year progresses.

In Nairobi County, Equity Afia operates clinics in Buruburu, Kayole, Kawangware, Kahawa West, Utawala, Embakasi and in CBD along Biashara Street. In Kiambu County, the franchise has clinics in Kikuyu, Thika and Ruiru and operates another clinic in Ongata Rongai, Kajiado County.

Outside Nairobi and its outskirts, Equity Afia has operational clinics in Nyeri, Nakuru, Kakamega and Meru Counties.

“At Equity Afia, we believe that by improving access to high quality and standardized healthcare, we will enhance quality of life and contribute to a healthier future. So far, our medical centres have recorded a total of 190,000 outpatient visit,” added Mbindu.

The clinics offer general consultation services, specialized clinics like obstetrics and gynaecology, well-baby clinics, dental services, optical services, dermatological services, paediatric services and nutrition services among others and are supported by well-equipped laboratories and stocked pharmacies.

Equity Afia is an initiative under the Equity Group Foundation that is using franchising principles to train and monitor a network of medical entrepreneurs, who are qualified alumni of the Equity Leaders Program (ELP).

The main goal is to ensure the sustained improvement of the health and well-being of Kenyans by increasing access to and utilization of quality, affordable and standardized healthcare.
