Patient Centered Care
“We are a patient’s rights organisation based in Nairobi, Our vision is the realisation of quality healthcare for all Kenyans regardless of their socio-economic status. Our work is to agitate for change in the public health sector through a number of public private partnerships revolving around advocacy, capacity building and access.”
Silent No More
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.

Some of our Projects
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.
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.
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.
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.
In 2013 we are proud to report that the Patient Solidarity Day was recognised by the World Health Organisation
This year, 2013, the Morris Moses Foundation has made major steps and advanced our vision of achieving improvement of quality of services in the health sector in Kenya. It has been an eventful year, which saw us sign the first ever patient rights charter among other achievements.
