PfID builds, expands, and renovates primary healthcare facilities in rural communities at a fraction of the cost of local contractors, to a higher standard of quality, and only under guarantees of government takeover. Our infrastructure projects are efficient, selected through rigorous needs assessments, and are fully integrated into the public healthcare system to ensure access and sustainability.
Our largest health infrastructure projects were organized in rural Kenya through our partner organization, Students for International Development. These include two maternity wards, two medical laboratories, two lab renovations, a main dispensary block, five rainwater capture and storage systems, two pit latrines, two high-yielding gardens to subsidize staff meals.
Our investments are made strategically. For example, in two cases we worked on vacant dispensary buildings that had languished incomplete for many years, resulting in the government opening a new facility after just a couple thousand dollars of investment.
