Penda Health runs full service medical clinics. It allows for out-of-pocket payments through M-Pesa. It also offers Penda Family Cover which is an optional membership scheme that covers all Penda Health services for a year at a cost of US $35.
Penda Health’s business model is based on serving a large number of low-income patients who are shunned by bigger hospitals that target higher profit margins. This market is currently served by low quality Hospitals (typically set up by a lone doctor, nurse or ‘quack’) or by over-burdened government clinics.The firm specializes in women health services such as breast and cervical cancer screening and family planning, in addition to general consultation, diagnostic tests and medicines.
