From April 23-26, NSVI will conduct a vasectomy mission at the FHOK (Family Health Options Kenya) office in the Phoenix House on Kenyatta Avenue in Nairobi, home base for our Kenya Domestic Team. This was originally intended as an extension of a first mission to Ethiopia. But that never materialized because of political issues. Given the uncertainly of the plans for Ethiopia and the unpredictable response in Kenya, this mission was not “opened” to other vasectomists. But in response to a personal request in late March to join a mission at some point, I mentioned it to Dr. De-Lin, and she was able to make arrangements on short notice. So the Team will consist of the four doctors below, PLUS! …
… World Vasectomy Day Co-Founder and Executive Producer Jonathan Stack, who will join the NSVI mission to reconnect with contacts made during WVD 2016 in Nairobi. He will then travel on to Kigali, Rwanda, the site of the International Conference on Family Planning (Nov 12-15) and World Vasectomy Day 2018 (Nov 16).
Drs. Stein and Curington will arrive in Nairobi at 1:30 PM on Thursday, April 19, and will be available over the next four days for press conferences, media interviews, and set-up of the Phoenix House venue.
Joining us will be Dr. Ochieng’s Domestic Support Team, featured in our Kenya Domestic Team page HERE.
