Kenya faces a number of serious problems, including widespread poverty, income inequality and lack of access to healthcare. One of the biggest challenges in Kenya is to make healthcare available to all its citizens. With approximately half its population living in poverty, Kenya struggles to provide access to basic healthcare services and medical treatment to its citizens, especially those living in rural communities and the densely populated slums. In fact, only 20 percent of Kenyans have health insurance, meaning 35 million Kenyans are without good healthcare coverage.
* Kenya faces an extreme shortage of medical professionals. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is only one doctor and 12 nurses or midwives per every 10,000 Kenyans.
* Although major public health interventions have assisted in reducing the country's mortality rates, including the HIV/AIDS crisis, the lack of medical professionals continues to take a harsh toll on the community.
* Access to essential quality services such as health care, education, clean water, and sanitation is a luxury for most citizens.
* The prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma and epilepsy in Kenya is growing swiftly – deaths from NCDs will soon surpass deaths from infectious diseases
