    Jacaranda Health aims to change the way maternal healthcare is provided in East Africa. We are building better systems and innovations to provide high-quality, patient-centered maternity care, piloting them in our own private hospital, and then working with government and counties to replicate our systems and best practices in high-volume public sector hospitals.

    We have built a world-class team, developed critical partnerships and support within Kenya, and sparked the interest of the global maternal health community. We’re now working with over 30 hospitals in several counties across Kenya and are growing quickly.
