A clinic in a rural pocket of Western Kenya that lacked clean water three years ago now has potable water, offers an expanded line of medical services, and is financially sustainable; a community-based health center in central Uganda added a second site, acquired its first ambulance, and qualified for free HIV medications; and a diagnostics start-up that four years ago was just an idea is now readying for market entry in East Africa and beyond.
