Nairobi is the fourth stop on Philips’ annual flagship Cairo to Cape Town Roadshow (from 14th April to 3rd September 2014) which focuses on two key challenges facing Africa today – the need for energy-efficient lighting and the revitalization of African healthcare infrastructure.
For this reason the electronics company will be illuminating the Kenya National Archives with the state of the art LED lighting. The Cairo to Cape Town Road show has also honored other African monuments like the Wilaya building in morocco as well as Maqam Echahid in Algiers.
apart from this the road show will also inaugurate a full size football pitch (7,000 msq) in Mathari, Nairobi.
Philips remains consistently committed to reducing child mortality and improving maternal health, linked to the current UN Millennium Development Goals 4 and 5 (MDGs). In contribution to the Post-2015 Development Agenda, Philips calls for improving universal access to healthcare and reducing the double-disease burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) as additions to the current MDGs. The Roadshow will make its way across seven countries and ten cities in Africa. The next stop will be in Lagos, Nigeria on the 8th of July.
