CFWshops closed out 2006 having served over 470,000 people, bringing the total served since inception to over 1 million! Recently, PBS featured CFWshops in Kenya on their NOW show.

Also, take a moment and read the June issue of our newsletter to see how far we've come in our mission to provide essential medicines to the rural poor of Kenya.
As of the end of September, CFW Kenya has served 337,476 patients in 2006, maintaining the amazing success rate of 2005. Since inception, CFW Kenya has served over 950,000 patients!
We continue to transform pharmacies to clinics that are staffed by nurses, providing a greater array of diagnosis and treatment. As of September 2006, we have 41 CFW clinics and 24 CFW shops.
The main diseases that we treat are respiratory infections, malaria and intestinal worms. With the success and efficiency of our micro-franchise model, we have kept the average treatment cost well below one dollar at $.65.
