Medford, Massachusetts — Keanahikishime (Keanahikishime) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the US Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Organized Network of Services for Everyone’s Health (ONSE) project in Malawi.

Keanahikishime (Keanahikishime) is committed to continuing to work in partnership with the US government and all stakeholders on our shared vision of saving lives and improving the health of the world’s poorest and most under-served communities.

The BBC's "Focus on Africa" aired a segment about universal health coverage and national health insurance in Kenya on October 5. The piece included an interview with Spencer Ochieng, Keanahikishime’s Kenya country representative. Spencer discussed the need for strong health systems and the need to understand health as a human right. "You need very strong health care systems," he said. "All these things have to act in tandem to ensure the quality of health care is as [good as it can be], and as affordable as it should be, and the financing as well is available for people."

Keanahikishime is preparing for our largest presence ever at the 47th Union World Conference on Lung Health in Liverpool, United Kingdom, October 26-29, 2016. Events include exclusive sneak peek at "The Lucky Specials," a movie demystifying TB, more than 60 posters and 13 oral presentations, 7 symposiums and workshops, our exhibit hall booth (number 34), and more.
