CHPF is a Trust registered since 2015 in Kenya and its activities mainly target education and healthcare. CHPF wants to improve the health of Kenyans and the quality of healthcare, with the specific focus to increase the availability and quality of health workers. The vision of the Trust is to be an innovative leader in the field of community health in Kenya and beyond. The mission is to improve the health of communities through training, service and research. The beneficiaries of our funds are rural populations, disadvantaged communities, pregnant women, young children, and patients with common but undermanaged diseases.  This being that medical practice in Kenya has become impersonal and dehumanized. Patient’s satisfaction is low and patients overall feel they were treated rude, impolite, and offered cold reception. Complaints are blatant violation of patients’ rights through verbal abuse.

The trustees and members of the team working for CHPF have between 10-30 years of national and international experience in healthcare and healthcare training as well as project and financial management experience, both in the public and private sector. CHPF is working together with the national government of Kenya through various regulatory bodies in health and education, and the county governments. We have also been working with private, public, and mission health facilities, and various international partners in the Netherlands, US, Denmark and Tanzania.
