Afya Uzazi Chief of Party Dr Boniface Maket (right) hands over a generator to be used by the Keringet Sub-County Hospital in Kuresoi South. Procured with USAID support, the generator received by Kuresoi South Sub-County medical officer of Health Dr. Anthony Tarus and other staff, will allow the hospital to continue providing services uninterrupted during electricity blackouts. The generator will ensure fridges work throughout, maintaining the safety of vaccines and other medicines stored in the cold chain.
It will also support continuous operation of the laboratory, ensuring samples are not damaged and that doctors get patient results to provide health services without delay. The project presented a second generator to Kuresoi North Sub-County to used at Total Dispensary. Afya Uzazi has provided generators to several health facilities that receive a high number of patients. With USAID support, Afya Uzazi is also working with partners to help to provide other essential equipment to improve maternal and child health
