What we do

M-Afya is a Maternal Neonatal Health (MNH) project that works with 10 private health facilities within Nairobi informal settlements to provide pregnant women with a flexible financing plan for maternity. This plan allows pregnant women to make pre-payments over the period of pregnancy for maternity fees using lipa na M-pesa services.

The M-Afya plan also disseminates maternity related health messages to women enrolled on the plan through the SMS throughout their pregnancy.

The M-Afya project is being implemented by Malteser International in partnership with the Ministry of health with support from DFID through the County Innovation Challenge Fund (CICF). It I located in Nairobi County, Embakasi Sub-county.
