over 600 treated at aki medical camp 2017

The annual AKI Medical Camp was held on Saturday, 10th June 2017 in Kirwara, Gatanga. The camp attended to over 600 people in the locality for diabetes, hypertension, foot care and wounds treatment, dental extractions and fillings, eye treatment and cataract surgeries, breast, prostate and cervical cancer screening and Voluntary Counselling and Testing (VCT) for HIV/AIDS. The camp also provided de-worming medication for all.

During the cheque handover ceremony held at AKI offices, DMI CEO, Mrs Eva Muchemi, lauded the AKI Medical camp saying that it goes a long way in helping persons who need medical attention in areas that are economically disadvantaged and also lack medical facilities.

She urged insurance companies to focus on preventive care to ensure a healthier population as that means less treatment, less admissions and this eventually this will have a positive impact on the companies’ balance sheets. “57% of bed space in hospitals is taken up by patients suffering from non-communicable diseases and these, if addressed early can be treated and can save lives” she notes.

“A healthy population is critical to the growth of our economy,” Mr. Tom Gichuhi, AKI Executive Director notes. Despite the recent upheavals, he cites the positive strides that the medical services sector has made including increased use of technology for accurate diagnosis and drug dispensation, and eradication of endemic diseases.

This was the 7th edition of the medical camp and AKI partnered with Kenya Diabetes Management and Information Centre (DMI) for logistics support. The event also supported by 11 insurance companies APA Insurance, Britam, Directline, Heritage, Jubilee, Kenindia, Kenya Orient, Madison Insurance, Occidental, UAP-Old Mutual and ICEA LION.

The AKI Medical camps have been held in various parts of the country over the last six years including Naivasha, Murang’a, Kajiado, Machakos, Kiambu and Mwea
