Equity Afia was established by Equity Group Foundation to respond to the growing need for affordable quality healthcare for all Kenyans. It is also providing a platform for alumni of the Equity Leaders Program who are qualified health professionals to join the franchise and use their health expertise to transform lives and livelihoods of Kenyans through offering affordable, quality and accessible healthcare.
