Sexual Reproductive Health & Rights
Having reduced child mortality by 60%, Kenya has made significant medical progress since the millennium, however, there are deep and persisting challenges with the nation’s health that remain unaddressed. Our research shows that 70% women local to Dandelion Africa have unmet needs for family planning, while only 56% receiving antenatal care. Insufficient healthcare like this is often due to poor education and infrastructure, for this reason, the Dandelion Africa Health Program pushes to reach those remote areas.
Central to the Health Program is an unprejudiced work ethic that aims to give a compassionate and professional service to people of all backgrounds and ages. This is an essential component, as many refuse healthcare due to stigma, fear and taboo. The newest edition, we are proud to announce, is the new and fully furnished maternity ward, built early 2019 to provide a safe space for all those in need of a comfortable and safe childbirth.[/helpme_fancy_text]
