This delegation visit came after the signature of the agreement between the Kenyan government and GKSD, a subsidiary of the San Donato Group, for the construction of a hospital and university center for mental illnesses and drug addiction at Nairobi where work could start soon on a large “citadel of mental health”, in line with a long-term vision to guarantee universal care in Kenya and to provide improved assistance and quality services to the Kenyan population, making the East African Country a health center in the region.

Today Nairobi has a psychiatric hospital that is absolutely insufficient and inadequate for developments in the treatment of mental disorders.  For the new Mathari Mental Hub, a large green area of about 80 hectares has been identified at the gates of the Kenyan capital where should rise the citadel made of about twenty low buildings, for over 172 thousand square meters, 16% of the area, including hospital, offices, residences for patients, apartments for 300 families of health personnel, a stadium with sports facilities complementary to therapies. The facility could accommodate up to 600 patients assisted by a staff of about 1,100 health personnel and technicians. The San Donato Group has the task of training local staff and starting a university center included in the  Mathari Mental Hub.
