Jacaranda Health

Jacaranda Health’s mission is to change the way that maternity care is provided in Africa. We are combining clinical and business innovations to create a self-sustaining chain of clinics that provide reproductive health services to urban women. Our goal is to become the largest provider of affordable maternity care in the region, and a leader for innovation in maternal health. We are proving the concept in peri-urban Nairobi with two clinics, then aim to scale up to 25 clinics in cities across East Africa over the next five years. To date, we have built a world-class team, developed partnerships and support within Kenya, sparked the interest of the global maternal health community, and received awards for our model of care. Our model of care has been exceptionally well-received by the women we serve and is a combination of two tightly-integrated services: (a) mobile clinics that create a direct link with our patients, boost demand for services and healthy outcomes through antenatal care and birth preparedness; and (b) maternity clinics where women can go for respectful obstetric care, safe delivery, family planning, and postnatal care.
