People needing efficient urgent care services instead of hospital emergency rooms can go to TEREM branches in Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh, Modi’in and Ma’aleh Adumim.

Soon, citizens of Kenya will be able to do the same.

The private chain of urgent care centers, which was founded by the late Dr. David Applebaum – who was murdered in a Jerusalem cafe in a terror attack during the Second Intifada – has been chosen as a model by Kenya’s health ministry, which first became familiar with TEREM’s clinics a few years ago.

Then, a TEREM delegation comprised of deputy director Dr. Nahum Kovalski, Dr.
Deena Zimmerman and Dr. Brendon Stewart-Freedman traveled to the African country several times in the last few years.

Two official Kenyan delegations, one a year ago headed by the Kenyan minister himself and one this week led by the ministry’s director-general, also visited TEREM headquarters in Jerusalem’s Romema neighborhood and signed a cooperation agreement with TEREM director Dr. Joe Djemal.

TEREM welcomed the decision, saying it would advance health in Africa and save many Kenyans who have gone without proper medical care.
