Turkana is Kenya's largest, least populated, and poorest county. Add a drought and the stresses on delivering maternal healthcare become acute. Women often have to walk for hours to get to rudimentary health care facilities. Complicated pregnancies become life threatening. UNOPS is building new facilities closer to the expecting mothers and supporting mobile health units that can cover more remote areas.
