First Steps

Silent No More

Silent No More- long

 

It all started with the silent no more campaign.

Where citizens took it upon themselves to speak out on behalf of the patient. It is still a very active part of what we do and anyone can take part. All you have to do is arm yourself with the Patient rights charter and speak out.  Patients now have rights in Kenya!

See below for some History from our founder Alice Mwongera in an interview recorded in February 2011 with host Jeff Koinange.
As you look back we are going forward. Have a look around our website to see what we are up to and perhaps how you could get involved.

This is juicy News and a win for the patients ... It is the high time that PATIENTS were treated with honour and respect and the dignity that they deserve. 
After all, they are the employers of the healthcare workers. Without the patients, the whole medical field would shit down.
Lets show them some respect.

Are these vaccinations good for the health of our masses? Why are some vaccinations causing problems and deformities to a section of the population? How sure are we that PATIENTS SAFETY is guaranteed while administering these vaccines?

But the patients had to be used as bargaining chips to leverage on the employer. 
You see, this is bad for the profession. 
I hope one day this will change.

A PATIENT dies while awaiting treatment in Mombasa, Kenya 🇰🇪.

It is very wrong to have people who have been entrusted to save lives downing their tools and even abandoning their stations to go ask for more money. 

PATIENTS MUST NOT be used as bargaining chips to get more money. 

It is everyones understanding that doctors are people of sound mind and people who can reason.

And since the doctors have a union that negotiates for them, why should all the doctors go on strike? 

It is evil to leave patients to die just because youre disgruntled. 

When youre done being disgruntled, the patient will have died and wont come back. 

You can come back from being disgruntled, but you cant come back from being dead. 

Doctors - REASON!!!

Some of our Projects

Tigoni hand wash campaign with Griffin's hospital team and Planetree​

 

The theme for the hand wash campaign was
“JE UMENAWA MIKONO?
Meaning ” Have you washed your hands?

This was mooted to get care providers to wash or sanitise their hands after attending to one patient before moving to another.

Patient Centred Care training Kiambu County
This was a 4-day training  ( September 2016 ) that brought together doctors, nurses,clinical officers and the administrative staff of different facilities within Kiambu county. The purpose of the training was to equip the caregivers with tools necessary to implement Patient-centred care in their institutions.
The trainers included Dr Haq Nawaz of Griffin Hospital Connecticut USA, Tracy Walsh of Planetree and Alice Mwongera of Morris Moses Foundation.

The training was hosted at KMTC Kiambu by Rosalind Murugami , Assistant director of nursing for Kiambu county under the leadership of  Dr. Toro,  Director of Health Kiambu county.

Hospital Partnerships

 

One of the activities which began in 2014 was to broker partnerships between public hospitals in Kenya and hospitals abroad. This creates a platform where our hospitals can receive technical support and also have the opportunity to exchange ideas in different areas of health care.

After many months of dialogue, Morris Moses Foundation, courtesy of Planetree and WHO, has been able to secure a partnership between Tigoni District Hospital and Griffins Hospital in Connecticut, USA. In the month of March, a team from Griffins Hospital and a representative from Planetree will be visiting Tigoni in order to understand the different challenges they face and the scope of what is needed to bridge the gaps.

Currently, Morris Moses is in talks with other hospitals and we hope to be able to sign more partnerships.

Boresha Afya Star Awards

In 2014 we launched the very first Boresha Afya Star Awards, BASA.

Our focus was to recognise health care workers who stood out despite the different challenges they face. We gave the patients the opportunity to give us feedback and help us recognise anyone they felt went beyond the call of duty to make their experience in a hospital a better one.

Based on the information we got, we managed to acknowledge the efforts of a number of individuals in different counties.
Some of the counties represented include Nairobi, Narok, Marsabit and Kiambu.

Dr. Lusweti of Thika level 5, who was one of the most voted stars, was part of the team that accompanied Alice to the annual Planetree conference in Chicago where Alice was a speaker on rewarding excellence.

The team also had an opportunity to interact with medics from different parts of the world where Patient Centred care is being practised as well as visit a few hospitals that have been able to perfect Patient centred care.

We hope to be able to have even more medics attending the next conference.
