AfCFTA: A vision and a plan for self-reliant and resilient Africa
Penda = Love
The recent coronavirus crises shone a searing spotlight on the critical importance of access to affordable, quality healthcare in Africa and globally.
Penda is a visionary chain of affordable medical centres in Nairobi, Kenya heeding this clarion call with a commitment to providing outpatient primary health care focussing on women and children, most of whom would otherwise not have access to reliable healthcare services at all.
Penda is a Swahili word which in English means Love, so in Penda we love our patients.Bernard Ondimo
Penda set themselves apart by providing services which can be up to 83% cheaper than other high quality private healthcare providers.
With a vision to open a network of over 100 medical centers across East Africa, Penda currently employs over 250 people, a figure they would like to double over the next 2 years. They are truly paving the way for affordable, quality healthcare in Africa.
A clear focus on women in employment and leadership positions sees 70% of all penda’s employees presently being women and women holding 46% of all the management jobs and 40% of board seats.
