Background of AOSK Health Network

The sisters engage on day-to-day implementation of human development aspects aimed at improving the lives of the disadvantaged and the vulnerable in areas where the government has not been able to reach or is overwhelmed. Key among which is ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being for all at all ages has been the catholic sisters’ main ministry. Catholic sisters have always worked to improve and increase accessibility of basic healthcare to the most vulnerable in the communities. Majority of them run levels one and two health facilities, which mostly take care of the poor and vulnerable. 

 Apart from serving in health facilities, the sisters are also taking care of other social groups like vulnerable children and the aged. The Catholic Church in Kenya, through the Dioceses and Congregations of religious men and women, provides health services through a network of health facilities that today comprise of 65 hospitals, 90 health centers, and 300 Dispensaries with an approximate total of 5837 healthcare providers (of which over 300 are sisters-run while the rest are diocesan/ parish run).
