The challenge

The most important resource at KTDA is its human resource that cascades to the bottom of the tea production pyramid. Productivity of tea farming is impacted by the health of farmers. It is estimated that 50% of tea farmers are above the age of 60 years. Unfortunately, this is the cohort that is most vulnerable to non-communicable diseases (NCD) and other health issues related to the elderly. Access to health and medical services is still the greatest challenge to health care delivery in Kenya with a limited percentage of the population having access to modern health facilities.
