Most families in the urban informal settlements can barely manage to feed themselves, let alone have the money to afford healthcare and medicines. Owing to this fact, APHRC holds bi-annual free medical camps in Viwandani and Korogocho slums to cater to needs of these communities.

During these camps:

• Residents get free consultations for common ailments and get free drugs to treat the ailments

• All children below five years are weighed to detect those with malnutrition and referred when necessary

• Vaccinations are given to those children with uncompleted schedules • Pregnant women are examined and counseled
• Family planning counseling and commodities are offered

• Suspected patients are screened for tuberculosis

• Voluntary counseling and testing (VCT) for HIV is provided for those who need it

• All adults above the age of 18 years are screened for diabetes and high blood pressure.
