The Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) in collaboration with the Ministry of Health has designed a loan scheme for health workers in Kenya. The pre-service loans are supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded FUNZO Kenya project and target bright and needy students who are committed to becoming health workers and in-service health workers who would like to further their studies.

 

Applications are invited from eligible Kenyans for the 2013/2014 admissions in health programmes that are accredited by the Government of Kenya. Priority will be given to students studying or seeking to study in cadres with critical shortages in the health care sector as well as students from remote, resource poor and marginalized communities.
