AKUH, EU Donate Ventilators to KNH and KU Hospitals

11 October 2021

The Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi has donated five ventilators to Kenyatta National Hospital and Kenyatta University Teaching, Referral and Research Hospital to boost their Covid-19 response. The Aga Khan University Hospital also handed over 7,000 Covid-19 testing and extraction kits to the Ministry of Health. The donation is part of a project that aims to improve systemic, gender-sensitive responses to overcome health, economic and social vulnerabilities caused by the Covid-19 pandemic in Eastern Africa. Henriette Geiger, the European Union Ambassador to Kenya said: “This donation is part of our larger regional programme, and aims to complement the Kenyan government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic, by increasing the testing, surveillance, and treatment capacities. Working together with our Member States as Team Europe, the EU is committed to global response and solidarity across borders because no one is safe until we are all safe.”
