The Integrated Community Healthcare Project (ICHP)
The Integrated Community Healthcare Project (ICHP) is a new project started by The Maa Trust in October 2019 to address Population, Health and Environment issues in the Maasai Mara Ecosystem.
The need for this ICHP project was identified in both the Mara health needs assessment undertaken by Amref and the population and settlement research commissioned by Maasai Mara Wildlife Conservancies Association (MMWCA).
This project is an expansion of The Maa Trust's preventative healthcare work and focuses on increasing accessibility, uptake and quality of healthcare services for communities in the Maasai Mara. The project will actively create awareness and access to Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) across the Maasai Mara Ecosystem through an integrated healthcare approach. Services are provided by:
- Six community based mobilisers working door-to-door
- Referrals to six partner facilities
- Mobile medical camps in rural communities four times each month
- Backpack nurse satisfying unmet medical needs in rural communities
