Liquid Telecom Kenya has connected Gertrude Children's Hospital in Nairobi to the Dadaab refugee complex. The community of approximately 250,000 refugees across four camps almost 500km away from the hospital now has access to dedicated healthcare including consultations, diagnostics and treatment over the internet. By using a 15Mbps connection at the hospital's Nairobi headquarters and a 2Mbps link at Dadaab sub-county hospital, Liquid Telecom Kenya is enabling the largest paediatric centre in East and Central Africa to deliver advanced treatment directly to Dadaab.
