HealthStore's Franchise Approach to Healthcare | - Development Through Enterprise

HealthStore's Franchise Approach to Healthcare: "The non-profit HealthStore Foundation (HS) (formerly Sustainable Healthcare Enterprise Foundation) was founded in 1997 to “prevent needless death and illness by sustainably improving access to essential medicines.” HS’s sixty-four for-profit HealthStore franchises serve roughly 400,000 patients per year; by 2008, it plans to expand its network to over 200 locations serving 1.5 million patients per year. Each HealthStore franchise is owned and operated by a licensed nurse practitioner or by a community health worker with a nurse on staff, enabling outlets to offer a wide range of products and services. With locations in underserved villages and urban areas throughout Kenya, HealthStore clinics provide access to much-needed healthcare, while generating enough revenue to pay their nurse-owners and staff a competitive annual salary."
