Overview


The Need

Kenya has made immense progress towards HIV/AIDS education, prevention and treatment programs. They are also improving malaria and tuberculosis programs. International Medical Relief is able to support and serve Kenya as they continue with these efforts and improve the overall wellbeing of the community. The shining faces of children will fill you with delight upon your arrival as you bring much needed aid to those without access to medical services. You will see every facet of life that Kenya has to offer from the orphanages and informal settlements to the villages and game parks. The leading causes of death in Kenya HIV/AIDS, lower respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, tuberculosis, and malaria. Since 2019, Kenya reported an infant mortality rate of 35 deaths per 1,000 live births. IMR continues to provide education towards sanitation and hygiene measures, as well as help increase access to clean water. 

Join the IMR team as we continue our decade-long work in Kenya to help improve the quality of life for the country. Kenya has undergone extensive improvements over the last few years, but the healthcare here still benefits from outside aid.

Our Work

International Medical Relief began serving in Kenya in 2006 with the goal of helping to alleviate the burden of communicable diseases that Kenya was facing, specifically HIV/AIDS. IMR was able to provide resources that broaden treatment options among many communities. IMR has worked alongside Kenyan officials in their efforts to expand HIV/AIDS treatment, assist in malaria control initiatives, and work with programs focused on maternal and child health. Since 2010, nearly 600 staff and volunteers have treated 20,000 patients. We continue to serve the communities in Kenya to decrease the burden of both communicable and non-communicable diseases. 

With diligent planning and preparation, IMR is dedicated to ensuring that specific goals are met on our missions, each in correlation to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 3, 6, and 17.

IMR works to elevate vulnerable populations through shoulder-to-shoulder care with our local partners, creating workforce density, and a cadre of future healthcare and public health leaders in association to UNSDG 3: Good Health & Wellbeing. 

Our medical mission teams also work toward UNSDG 6: Clean Water & Sanitation by supporting and strengthening the participation of local communities in improving their water quality, and installing water filtration systems that supply communities with clean drinking water and providing education on hydration and hygiene.

In correlation with UNSDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals, our organization works in collaboration and at the request of local hosts where we are under their direct influence and affluence. IMR never goes into a country without a formal invitation where there is a great community need for medical or dental care, and health education.
