We partner with communities, governments and NGO’s to improve access to health services.

Current initiatives are aimed at improving health delivery at various levels and tackling problematic health issues identified by the community.

Community Health Units (CHU)

CHUs provide the first level of health care with trained volunteer health workers providing basic healthcare services.

Base Titanium now supports 9 Community Health Units with 261 Community Health Volunteers covering 52 villages from the host site, mine site and the Likoni port facility areas.

Hospital Equipment

Improving access to healthcare is a key component of our community programs.

 

The Magaoni Health Centre, built by Base Titanium, was opened in July 2014. Base Titanium also provided equipment for this facility and the Bwiti Dispensary which was completed in 2012.

PMTCT Project

Base Titanium supports the Mentor Mothers HIV control program for the Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission.

Initiated in 2016 in partnership with the Kwale County Government, the project operates through 24 mentor mothers placed in 12 health facilities within Kwale County.

Mentor mothers play a critical role in promoting improved healthcare and uptake of adherence, retention-in-care and psychosocial support to HIV-positive mothers. They draw from their own experiences as beneficiaries of the PMTCT program to inspire behavioural change in their peers.
