About Tunza

For the Tunza Family Health Network, that journey began in December 2008 when PSI/Kenya launched the social franchise with a handful of healthcare facilities. Now in its’ 5th year, the Tunza network has experienced phenomenal growth and currently has a membership of over 320 network clinics in all of Kenya’s former 8 provinces with 39 counties out of the 47 counties having our clinics.

At inception, family planning, with a focus on the more cost-effective, long-term and reversible methods namely intrauterine devices (IUCDs) and implants was the the only franchised service. Over the years, PS Kenya has integrated other services into the network; these include Cervical Cancer Screening and Preventative Treatment (CCS&PT), HIV Testing and Counseling (HTC), HIV Care and Treatment, Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses (IMCI), and Voluntary Male Medical Circumcision (VMMC). Tunza interventions have also grown to include a family planning voucher scheme launched in July 2011 to provide low-income women with access to long-term family planning by subsidizing the cost of service. In 2014, three new health areas were introduced to the network. They include: Safe Motherhood, Tuberculosis, and elimination of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (eMTCT).
