Violence that followed Kenya’s 2007 elections left approximately 1,000 people dead, hundreds of thousands displaced and the entire nation reeling. With one of the world’s highest HIV/ AIDS infection rates, it’s estimated that between 1.5 and 2 million Kenyans carry the virus.

Following the worst droughts to affect the Horn of Africa in more than 60 years areas of Kenya have suffered serious food shortages and increasing malnutrition rates. Refugees from conflict and famine across the border in Somalia have swelled the Dadaab complex in Eastern Kenya to become the largest refugee camp in the world.

Our work in Kenya

International Medical Corps has more than a decade of experience working in Kenya, much of it at the centre of the battle to contain Kenya’s HIV/ AIDS epidemic. We currently administer two large HIV/ AIDS programmes targetting vulnerable populations including young people, fishing communities, prisoners and sex workers. Our efforts also focus on prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV/ AIDS.

In addition, we operate emergency nutrition programmes for drought-stricken populations in northern and coastal Kenya, where livelihoods have also been badly affected by the effects of unrest and famine in neighboring Somalia.
