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
Soon, citizens of Kenya will be able to do the same.
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
Then, a TEREM delegation comprised of deputy director Dr. Nahum
Deena Zimmerman and Dr. Brendon Stewart-Freedman
traveled to the African country several times in the last few years.
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.
