In June 2020, we invested in the Kenyan healthcare provider Penda Health, currently offering primary care in Nairobi.
Penda Health has been building a base of loyal patients by offering affordable and high quality healthcare. It currently has a network of 16 primary care medical centres for lower-and-middle income patients, which offer comprehensive outpatient services, including general and specialist consultations, lab services, pharmacy services, antenatal care, vaccinations etc. During the COVID-19 crisis, Penda has kicked off its blended healthcare model by rolling out telehealth services, as well as medicine delivery, to respond to emerging patient needs.
Penda has treated patients in hundreds of thousands of healthcare visits, of which 75% were from loyal patients.
We are excited to work closely with Penda Health and have a firm belief that they will continue to play a key role in the Kenyan healthcare system during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
