Canadian Nurses for Africa believe that access to basic health care is a universal human right.

Our mission is to provide free medical field care and preventative health care to communities in the Kakamega and Vihiga counties of Kenya.

CNFA is a nurse-led volunteer organization empowering experienced nurses to use their knowledge and skills in a field setting. We conduct medical missions in rural Kenya where we partner with Kenyan medical personnel and community workers. We treat a wide range of illnesses, with malaria and upper respiratory problems being the most frequent.

We also treat many wounds, burns, musculoskeletal injuries and do point-of-care diabetes testing. Along with our daily clinics, we conduct sexual health education classes for men, women and students. We also offer deworming programs in schools, and a jiggers eradication program which we support throughout the year. In most recent years, we have treated 650-1000 patients a day and have provided up to 3600 individual jiggers treatments a year.



We will be selecting the next team of nurses in early September, giving priority to nurses who were accepted to the last mission that was cancelled due to COVID restrictions.
