Our paediatric clinic ensures that babies and children receive their immunisations and are meeting their developmental milestones. We provide holistic care for sick children by treating current conditions and also evaluating nutritional and social circumstances of each child and their family.

Paediatric clinic
At each visit, children are assessed, and their vital signs, milestones, height and weight are recorded. Doing this helps to identify abnormal behaviour or physical conditions early. 


We prioritise giving babies and children their appropriate immunisations, vitamins and deworming to prevent specific childhood diseases. We advise children to come to the clinic every six months, from the age of six months.
