Since 2017, Flare has helped thousands during the worst moments of their lives, while reducing response times in Kenya by over 90%. Public healthcare dominates in Kenya with 61% of expenditure, as private is unaffordable. In 2019, Flare signed an MOU with Laikipia County, as part of a long-term partnership strategy to boost efficiency, accountability, and reliability in Kenya’s public system. Over 70% of people in Laikipia live rurally and lack healthcare. Ambulances are poorly managed, leading to low utilization and high response times. Through easy to use and set-up technology, designed to operate offline and in low-bandwidth settings, Flare routes the nearest available ambulance to patients, and provides over-the-phone care. For the first time in Laikipia, ambulances are now online and arriving on time.
