More Kenyans To Benefit From New Private Sector Healthcare Initiative

Friday, March 28, 2014

Excelsior Group’s Foundation and the Kenya Association of Private Hospitals (KAPH) have reached an agreement to improve healthcare accessibility for 30 percent of Kenya’s population.

Private sector networks account for more than 50 percent of Kenya’s healthcare providers serving the needs of Kenyans living on lower incomes.

Through this new initiative, Excelsior Group has agreed to support KAPH’s dialogue with the business community and strategic partners, to address such issues as regulation enabling, affordable treatment, shortage of skilled professionals and improving access to capital.

“By supporting KAPH, we seek to stem the vicious poverty cycle and continue our work to transform healthcare in Kenya by building leadership amongst the private healthcare sector,” said Dr. Felix Olale, Chairman of Excelsior Group and CEO of Wellness Group.
