World Health Partners

In 2014, World Health Partners (WHP) committed to expand Sky, a social health franchise network for rural communities in Kenya. WHP and its partner, the Kenya Medical and Education Trust (KMET), committed to add 30 clinics, 300 community health volunteers, and 75 pharmacies to the existing Sky network in Kenya by December 2015, expanding the delivery of quality health services to approximately 50,000 people. WHP will conduct a regional scoping evaluation, recruit candidates to join the Sky network, improve the supply chain for providers, and support telemedicine linkages between patients in rural communities and qualified doctors in major urban centers.
