Despite national progress,
inequalities remain

Over the last two decades, Kenya has made significant progress in improving key health indicators. Between 2000 and 2019, maternal mortality and under-5 mortality declined by over 50%, average life expectancy increased by about 15 years, and HIV prevalence among those aged 15-49 reduced 50%. 

Despite this progress, improvements are not evenly distributed across the nation. 

Informal settlements face significant challenges and continue to struggle disproportionately with: 

  • Weak health infrastructures 
  • Overcrowding 
  • Poor housing conditions
  • High rates of unemployment and poverty

These challenges limit residents’ access to health care, lead to the spread of infectious diseases, contribute to high rates of maternal and child mortality, and result in poor health-seeking behaviors. 


At CFK Africa, we strengthen health systems and decrease preventable illnesses and deaths in informal settlements by delivering primary health care services, leading public health surveillance, and supporting partner facilities with essential products and services.  

Moving beyond clinic walls, we also take health promotion into the community, meeting people where they are, addressing misinformation, improving health-seeking behaviors, and encouraging residents to become champions for positive health behavior change. 

Our primary health care work falls under five core focus areas. 

Serving ​

patients annually



children with routine vaccinations every month



babies safely every month
