Medic Outpost's mission is to provide training and equipment to remote first responders in rural Kenya. Medic Outpost will be training community healthcare workers in rural counties to provide basic emergency care and diagnostic evaluations in within their communities. First responders will be in contact with area medical professionals for consultation through the extensive cellular network in Kenya. Medical control will determine the treatment needed and the proper course of action.

Africans living in remote rural areas are dying at ever increasing numbers from preventable illness and injury. Healthcare is difficult to reach and expensive for rural populations in Kenya. Rural hospitals are overwhelmed. They lack funding and resources to provide care to the increasing population. Patients are often unable to reach distant hospitals and cannot afford basic hospital and clinic charges, which cause minor medical conditions to become more serious and often life-threatening.


The project goals are to partner with the county community healthcare departments and provide their community representatives with first responder training. Those responders work and live within the community and will provide basic care along with the ability to "tele-medicine" with local medical professionals on treatment options and plans. First responders can intervene with minor treatments and relay diagnostics information to medical professionals in the event of more serious conditions.

Long-Term Impact

Our goal is to grow remote first responder teams that will continue to provide basic emergency care to rural communities. Long-term goals are to increase the level of training and interface with rural hospitals to provide initial care and preventative care that will decrease the patient load at low resource hospitals.
