Family Care Clinic, Mombasa, Kenya
The Family Care Clinic (FCC) provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art pediatric HIV services to children and young people. It began in 2001, as a pilot program embedded within the Coast General Hospital to provide clinical and support services to children and families living with HIV, and became the inspiration for Keep a Child Alive. The early success of the ‘Mombasa Model’ proved that keeping a child alive was not only a moral imperative, but an ideal that was entirely possible.
Today, FCC stands as a proud model program and leader in pediatric HIV care in Kenya and beyond.
