All this expansion was done but the number of staff addition was very minimal; thus there is a very big sta shortage at the center. It’s the only referral government hospital in a radius of 70 kilometers. The nearest such institutions are in Kilifi 70 kilometers south and Garisa 300 kilometers north. This makes the hospital have a lot of patients that the staff is not able to cope with; thus the administration is welcoming any type of medical volunteer, intern and professionals to come and help out with the situation.

The KWS veterinary services department, since its inception in 1990, has been based at the organization's headquarters in Nairobi. Currently, these services are being divided into field stations, with three field stations already functional, namely: Tsavo, Mountain and Central Rift. In the KWS organizational structure, the veterinary services department is under the Division of Research, Biodiversity and Monitoring. It is divided into three core sections, namely: field services and research, diagnostics and laboratory services and animal capture. The department is charged with the responsibility of maintaining viable, healthy and breeding wildlife populations in Kenya.
To achieve this, the department uses various technical strategies such as clinical intervention for sick or injured wild animals, regular disease monitoring, surveillance, prevention and control of disease in both free-range and captivity. Other strategies include veterinary research, animal translocations and relocations, animal rescue activities, and captive animal management. The department also offers quarantine to confiscated animals or animals on transit through Kenya.
The department is comprised of competent wildlife veterinarians, laboratory technologists, animal health technologists, animal capture staff, research scientist and other supportive staff. They can mobilize themselves quickly in response to reported cases from the field stations, National Parks, National Reserves and ranches that require veterinary intervention.
Activities: The department responds to field case reports of sickness, deaths and injury of animals to provide appropriate veterinary intervention and also collect samples for laboratory-based diagnosis/analysis. The field veterinary staff members are able to handle all species such as elephants, rhinos, lions, cheetahs, giraffes, antelopes, birds, reptiles and fish.
Participants will always work as team members, alongside KWS staff members and researchers. There will always be someone to guide participants on what to do as well as provide assignments and compare notes. The work is usually spontaneous and often changes according to the demands and needs of the various departments within the parks. The work involved with the KWS is varied and fascinating. Participants will have ample opportunities to contribute to the conservation efforts of Kenya. The nature of the projects depends on what is available and greatly depends on the duration of time enrolled in the projects.
