Basic Care Package Care Kits (BCP)

Assembling and delivering BCP kits across Kenya
Warehouse staff fills a BCP kit carton

In February 2013, Kenya Pharma took on a new task of packing and distributing basic care packages (BCP) to health care facilities around Kenya. The BCP kit is a collection of evidence based interventions which are easy to implement for the benefit of people living with HIV or AIDS (PLHIV). It focuses on preventing common opportunistic infections that affect people living with HIV such as malaria, diarrhea and sexually transmitted infections. The interventions are patient centered and have the potential to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV.

On average, Kenya Pharma has been able to assemble 3000 kits per day and dispatch about 7500 to 10,000 kits per week. However a major challenge at the start of this task was the slow turnaround of deliveries. Heavy rains experienced during the months of April and May made some of the roads in Nyanza region impassable, in addition to the fact that many of these facilities were new to Kenya Pharma and were therefore new, unfamiliar routes for the transport team.

So far, Kenya Pharma has delivered over 50,000 kits to more than 300 health facilities in Nyanza, Coast, Eastern, North and South Rift regions. The project is preparing to deliver about 20,000 kits to Western region by mid-year. This is an enormous undertaking given that the project continues with its normal operations of supplying HIV medicines to 659 service delivery points across the country every month.
