Seventy-one medical students in Kwale have graduated from the Kenya School for Integrated Medicine.

The European Union co-funded the five-year programme.

Principal Esther Karanja said the programme aims to teach medics to integrate conventional and alternative medicine into the healthcare system.

“This is the only institution in Kenya based in Kwale county that offers both conventional and alternative medicine courses with an integrated approach to health, bringing the best medical health knowledge from Kenya and abroad,” she said.
