IOM and Kenya's National AIDS Control Council
are today opening a free health care clinic to assist vulnerable and often
hard-to-reach mobile populations on the busy Kenyan-Ugandan border.
The health centre, which is located in
the heart of a trailer park in the town of Busia, in Kenya's Western province,
will address the health needs of mobile populations, including the provision
of free tuberculosis, malaria and HIV treatment. Nurses will be available
24 hours a day to offer free and confidential HIV counseling.
"This is just a beginning,"
