The Kenya Medical Women’s Association (KMWA) was established in 1983 as a membership organization for Kenyan female Medical Doctors and Dentists. It is an independent Non-Governmental and non- profit making organization registered under the laws of Kenya. It seeks to uplift the health status of women, adolescents and children in Kenya by enhancing the capacity and potential of medical women to respond through determined action involving advocacy, information and service provision, to meet their special needs and whose main agenda is voluntary in nature. Currently we have slightly over 400 members, which includes up country branches in North Rift, Nyanza and Eastern Provinces.
Founded in London in 1983 by three partners, we now employ more than 1,000 professionals worldwide. We advise and support global companies that are leaders in their industries.
