Equity Ventures Further Into Healthcare Through Afia Clinics

In a quest to respond to the growing need for affordable quality healthcare for Kenyans, Equity Bank has rolled out additional Equity Afia clinics in Kenyan towns and estates in Nairobi.

The clinics with in-house specialists such as pediatricians, gynaecologist, obstetricians, ENT services, physicians, nutritionists, physiotherapists, antenatal and well-baby clinics, offer comprehensive outpatient care for the whole family. Services include consultation by the doctors, a wide range of outpatient procedures, modern laboratories, and in-house pharmacies.

The institution ventures into healthcare by launching Equity Afia clinics across the country, this will mean affordable medical services for the mwananchi without having to dig deeper into the pockets. So far Equity Afia has clinics in Ongata Rongai, Thika, Buruburu, Kayole and Kawangware with Ruiru and Nyeri being the latest additionals.

Speaking during the launch ceremony in Ruiru, the Chief Guest, Equity Bank Kenya Chairman Prof. Isaac Macharia said all the Equity Afia facilities are NHIF (National Hospital Insurance Fund) accredited, facilitating further access to quality medical services by a majority of Kenyans. “The clinics will not only provide curative care, but they will be heavily involved in preventative healthcare,” he added.

The franchise is also providing a platform for alumni of the Equity Leaders Program who are qualified health professionals to join and use their health expertise to deliver affordable healthcare. The institution through the bank is also providing financial support for doctors wishing to set up such centers.
