“Because of high costs in medical billing in their own country, many Americans are becoming medical tourists in search of affordable healthcare”

Nairobi, August 23th 2011 – The newly inaugurated American-Kenyan Health & Wellness programme may become part of the annual Medical Calendar of events from next year.

Professor Peter Anyang-Nyong’o, Minister for Medical services, lauded the organisers, for making a positive contribution to the community, during a courtesy call by Dr. Folorunso Ibraheem of Grassroots Health Care Inc, a Family Clinic based in Miami Florida, at his Office in Afya House Friday 19th 2011.

Dr. Ibraheem and Kenyan Eunice Munanie Kyalo, a Social Scientist & Health Consultant

based in the UK, are the brains behind the venture launched at the Jacaranda Hotel – Nairobi on 5th August 2011.

Dr. Ibraheem noted that the Conference participants were very enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoyed themselves

through the workshops in the afternoon.  Apart from the free medical check-ups, the participants were taken through basic yoga lessons by

NLP Certified Master Practitioner Fazilah Bazari.

The US Medical Tourism agenda is a powerful phenomenon geared towards the medical wellness of members

from all over the world.   The programme has been well received in Nigeria, where several workshops were held across the country in major cities including; Lagos, Ibadan, Zaria, Kaduna, Abuja and Portharcourt.

Nairobi had been selected as the launching pad for the rest of the African region, with more conferences and training workshops (TBC) in other neighbouring countries.

Dr. Ibraheem hinted that with proper funding, there would be a larger involvement of Doctors from the Diaspora who were ready and willing to partner local Doctors in the service to the community.  He said the sharing of skills and experience, would also lead to the exchange of ideas on the use of modern technology that has been availed in the Western World.
