Accessing Medical Services during movement restrictions

07 May 2020

The Kenyan Government has now applied additional movement restrictions to certain areas as part of its concerted efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic in Kenya.

The restriction of movement into and out of Eastleigh area (within Nairobi Metropolitan area) and Old town area within Mombasa county is now in effect as from 6th May 2020.

The current movement restrictions and possible future extensions of the same highlights the importance of being familiar with alternative medical support channels at this time.

At JMS, we endeavor to be accessible on 24/7 basis. Our emergency lines are open to you even after normal office hours regardless of where you are calling from.

  • Hospitals: Various health facilities are now offering tele-consultation and prescription delivery services including Aga Khan , MP-Shah and  Nairobi Hospital .
  • Insurance Telehealth: Cigna insurance has also availed tele-health services to all UN personnel under their medical plan.
