The Health Information Hub

The health Information hub was launched in Nakuru on 26th April 2013 by BAI Head of Programmes, Jill Haynes and the knls Director, Mr. Richard Atuti. The event was attended by about 50 health workers from Nakuru (on invitation). Participants appreciated knls and BAI’s gesture of providing them with a rich collection of health information, which they said would help them in improving their professions. Together with Nakuru, other health hubs sponsored by Elsevier Foundation through BAI were established in Thika, Isiolo, Mombasa, Embu, Kabarnet, Garissa, Wundanyi, Kericho, Laikipia, Nyilima, Murang’a, Buruburu, Nakuru, Mwingi, and Dzitsoni.

The health workers present came from 16 different institutions, which was a good representation from Nakuru town. The health officers were excited about the program and gave recommendations of various other books they would love to have stocked at the library. Through the project, the libraries involved received new books and increased number of readers.
