The College of Health Sciences (CHS) is one of the six colleges of the University of Nairobi and a premier health training institution in the region. It comprises of the schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, Dental Sciences, Nursing Sciences, Public Health, Centre for HIV Prevention and Research and the University of Nairobi Institute of Tropical and Infectious Diseases.
The College of health Sciences has performed very well in the 2008-2013 Strategic Plan period and endeavours to maintain this performance. This performance was achieved through growing student numbers, revision of several curricula, increased numbers of programmes offered as well as many new and on-going local and international research projects. Contemporary factors that College will need to adapt to so as to remain relevant include the Kenya Constitution 2010, Universities act 2012 and a very dynamic external environment.
This Strategic Plan summarises our current position, our priorities and sets out a series of activities that the College proposes to implement during the next five years to realise our full potential. To maintain the College as a premier international teaching and research institution the Strategic Plan reaffirms our mandate of training high calibre health care professionals.
This College Strategic Plan has been cascaded down from the University Strategic Plan 2013 – 2018. In developing this Strategic Plan the College involved a wide spectrum of stakeholders in the medical professions and beyond who provided invaluable information. All stakeholders were identified equality, good relations and quality education as ingredients to success.
The College Strategic Plan will form the basis on which all Schools and Departments will cascade individual unit development plans. Once the cascading process is completed at all levels of the College, it will enable effective implementation of the University Strategic Plan
