Child Health

 
 

 

PRIORITIZING THE MOST VULNERABLE PEOPLE WE SERVE.

Children make up nearly half of Kenya’s population, but they suffer from the highest mortality of any age group. About one in 10 children in Western Kenya die before they reach the age of five, mostly from preventable illnesses such as pneumonia, diarrhea, HIV, malaria, malnutrition, measles, and neonatal complications.

AMPATH is working hard to change that, from prevention and home testing programs to making sure all children have access to primary health care, as well as improving birth and newborn services in-home and in-hospital. We also go beyond care to make sure children have the nutrition, shelter, counseling, and social support they need to thrive.
