The University of Nairobi and Rainbow for Africa UK, have entered into discussions on ways in which they can enhance medical corporate social responsibility and medical outreach to the society. The team of medical doctors from Liverpool (UK) and Turin (Italy) were at the University on September 13, 2017.

Rainbow for Africa UK is a nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to increase the quality, specificity and accessibility of health systems in developing countries. They respond to humanitarian needs, supporting clinical staff to travel to areas requiring their targeted expertise with direct patient care or by training local clinicians. They aim to make sustainable improvements, leaving skills and expertise within the region once their specific mission is complete.

They work in partnership with local churches and community groups to present a practical demonstration of the gospel in action within the locality.

Through the St. Paul’s Free Medical Camp committee, it was observed that the medical team from UK and Italy are willing to continue working with the St. Paul’s University Chapel to enhance student exchange programmes especially for those in the medical field. The students who participated in the medical camps got a chance to learn and interact with experts from medical profession.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi said that the University of Nairobi aims at producing holistic graduates and that there are several opportunities through which students can be developed through professional associations like Medical Students Association, Environmental Club, Business Students Association, among others, where students get a chance to impact the society.

Also present during the meeting were Prof. Henry Mutoro, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic Affairs, Prof. F. Were, ag. Principal, College of Health Sciences, Chief Medical Officer, Dr. M. R. B. Otieno, F. Wanyama, Dept. of Human Pathology, Dr. R. Nalugala, St. Pauls University Chapel and  Dr G. Mutuma, CEO Zambezi Hospital.
