Abstract:
Kisumu, the capital of Nyanza Province in western Kenya, was designated as a Millennium City by the Earth Institute at Columbia University in 2006. The city is struggling to reduce high maternal and child mortality rates and faces numerous other health challenges, including high rates of malaria and HIV prevalence, lack of qualified health workers and a dilapidated health infrastructure. Poor access to health services, clean water and sanitation facilities also contributes to the high burden of ill-health in the city.
