WHO WE ARE

Safari Doctors was founded on the belief that access to healthcare is a right, not a privilege. We are a community-based social enterprise, working to advance healthcare in Lamu, Kenya. Since 2015, our mission has been to provide innovative, community-driven healthcare solutions that promote well-being for marginalized communities. The indigenous communities we serve, live within the archipelago and on the mainland near the border with Somalia. Insecurity, neglect and remoteness impede their access to health services.

OUR WORK

Our team conducts monthly mobile clinics by boat and road across at least 15 remote villages. Together with outpatient services offered at the Safari Doctors Medical Centre, we reach around 1,500 patients every month.

Safari Doctors believes that Kenya's efforts to attain Universal Health Coverage by 2030 must include a mobile model of health service delivery and the engagement of young people. Our Youth Health Ambassadors programme trains young men and women to become Community Health Workers (CHWs) and agents of positive change in their communities.

As part of our One Health approach, the Safari Vets programme cares for hundreds of animals. During our outreach, we provide free veterinary services and community education on animal welfare and zoonoses.

In 2017, the UN in Kenya awarded the Safari Doctors team the United Nations Person of the Year award, “for the outstanding efforts and commendable work providing medical care to marginalized communities in the far reaching areas of Lamu.” In 2020, Safari Doctors was the recipient of a UN SDG Action Campaign Solidarity Award.
