The hospital has a specialist AIDS Centre. The AIDS Research and Family Care Clinic (ARFCC) is an initiative established in May 2001 at the Coast Province General Hospital in the city of Mombasa, Kenya. The hospital is the city’s largest public health care facility and provides services to about 800 HIV positive pregnant women each year. ARFCC is a joint venture between New York University’s School of Medicine and King Cole Inc. which is a ‘non profit making’ institution that supports innovative HIV/AIDS programs in the developing world.
The aim of the clinic is to offer treatments to HIV-infected pregnant women to prevent pediatric infection and also to provide a comprehensive range of medical and psychosocial services to families living with HIV. The clinic facilities are complemented by a dedicated state-of-the-art laboratory which offers free HIV tests, CD4 counts and a specialized test to aid in the early diagnosis of HIV-infected infants.
