East Africa’s First Liver Clinics to Be Set Up in Kenya

Kenyans suffering from various liver diseases have a reason to smile following a partnership between the Mediheal Group of hospitals and India’s Yashoda Institute of Liver Transplant and Hepatobiliary Diseases.

The partnership will see the setting up of  three liver clinics in Nairobi, Eldoret and Nakuru making Kenya the first East African country to host such medical facilities.

The clinics will bolster care and management for liver patients, while encouraging foreign investment in Kenya’s medical sector.

Currently, over 5000 Kenyans travel to India in search of liver treatment.
