This is a list of hospitals that offer cancer treatment in Kenya. Kenya has very few facilities that are well equipped and with the prescribed capacity to treat cancer. This is one of the major reasons that has forced many cancer patients in Kenya to seek help abroad, particular India which is actually the best destination to seek treatment for chronic illnesses and killer diseases such as cancer.
