Fall 2019


Dedicated to the health of mothers and their families in Africa

2020 MicroClinic Expands its Reach into
South Sudan
2020 MicroClinic is proud to announce that, along with our partner, Sagitarix, Ltd. (Kenya), we are now operating in TWO countries—Kenya and South Sudan!
 
During the launch in Juba, South Sudan, the staff saw more than 500 patients, finding dozens of cases of untreated malaria, hepatitis B, HIV, and other infections.
 
Many thanks to our wonderful supporters for allowing us to expand our program to populations that so desperately need our services.

2020 MicroClinic Recipient of Two Important Grants
We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded two grants that will help us further our mission to improve the health of mothers and their families in medically underserved communities. 

The Pfizer Foundation’s Global Health Innovation Grant. This is the fourth year that the Pfizer Foundation has chosen to support 2020 MicroClinic. With this generous grant, 2020 MCI, in concert with Pfizer, has set a goal of ensuring more women adhere to prenatal care guidelines as set forth by the World Health Organization. Pfizer’s focus this year is infectious diseases, and 2020 MicroClinic’s work to diagnose and treat asymptomatic urinary tract infection and monitor sensitivity to antibiotics is critical to this mission.
The International Foundation. We are honored to partner with the International Foundation in their aim to improve the health, education, and incomes of poor communities in the developing world. This grant will allow us to expand our prenatal program within Nakuru County, Kenya—a county of about 2.3 million people that has only one major hospital.
Thank you, Pfizer Foundation and International Foundation!
Fall into Fundraising!
Thank you to all who made our two fall fundraisers such a huge success. We raised nearly $25,000 to support our programs in Kenya and South Sudan and had so much fun in the process.

A special thanks to our naming sponsors—Black Knight Vineyards and Mirsky Financial Management!
