2020 MicroClinics Initiatives 

2020 MicroClinics Initiative, Inc. is a research and community development NGO that seeks to increase access to maternal and child services in Kenya. A key component of the organization's service model is Operation Karibu, through with they train community health workers (CHWs) to produce baby clothing in clinics and the clothing is donated to every child to ensure none are born without clothes. Since being launched in 2011, over 1,500 babies have benefited from the program.

The CCMC-GLOhBAl international global health rotation in Kenya provides clinicians, residents, medical and public health students the opportunity to work with local health care providers to improve the health and well-being of children and families in medically underserved settings.
