In September 2008, Vestergaard Frandsen launched a ground-breaking Integrated Demonstration Campaign called CarePack on Kenya offering HIV testing and counseling to thousands of families. In addition, each family received a insecticide-treated PermaNet, LifeStraw water filters, condoms, and educational materials.
On International Women’s Day in 2018, Vestergaard opened the doors of a donated 12-bed maternity ward in western Kenya’s Lurambi Sub-County. The ward, equipped with technologies previously unavailable in this region of Kenya, provides high quality maternal and neonatal healthcare to the rural women of this community. The opening of the Emusanda Maternity Ward signals Vestergaard’s long-standing commitment to the health and well-being of this community.
