Huruma Tele Medical Clinic treats everybody: men, women, children and elderly people. Besides taking care of diseases and injuries we also offer special programs such as maternal child welfare clinics, free family planning clinic days, talks on HIV and productive health, child vaccination and cervical cancer screening days.
Learn more about us in the following video or take a look at this video of an consultation at Huruma Tele Medical.
Because our mission is to give even the poorest access to medical treatments only those patients who can afford it, pay the full price for our care.
Which is – for example – 7 US-Dollar for Malaria treatment for an adult (consultation, investigation and drugs) or 5 to 6 US Dollar for children.
For those who can’t pay the treatment is subsidized or even free. Every donation of yours helps us to get the medication for those patients.
Our maternal child welfare clinics include antenatal, postnatal and child welfare clinics. Mothers come for integrated services. Routine profiles are done during pregnancy-stool,urine,Haemoglobin levels and Blood Grouping.Vaccination against Tetanus is given.
Malaria is an issue in many African countries and it also is in Kenya and Kilifi. Because Malaria is transmitted by the female Anopheles mosquito using a mosquito net is a good Malaria prevention. Which is why we educate our patients on the disease and give out mosquito nets to the community as well as we treat patients who got infected.
Men and women come for family planning methods of their choice like Pills, 3 months injection, 3 and 5 years implants, intrauterine contraceptive device (IUCD) and condoms. We also advise on Vasectomy and the Calendar method.
We screen suspicious cases and offer advice and treatment as per government policies. This goes together with health talks on sexually transmitted diseases and prevention. Therefore we cooperate with Mary Stopes. An organization that is the leading provider of sexual and reproductive health services in Kenya.
We vaccinate children including BCG for tuberculosis, DPT for diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus. We also check children for growth and development milestones which helps to know their nutritional capabilities.
We have designated cervical cancer screening days using the Via Vili-method (Visual Inspection With Acetic Acid and Lugol’s Iodine). Any suspected case is referred for further management.
If we get a case we can’t manage we refer to a bigger profile Hospital within the Kilifi private practitioner’s network. All over the County there are more than 50 clinics that are part of the network.
Those hospitals with bigger profiles than us are at Level 4, these do operations like Caesarean section, appendicectomy etc.
However we work in collaboration with government facilities because of the same goal:
A healthy Nation.
