The Maasai community has very few health facilities to provide
proper medical services, so they depend on traditional, herbal healing methods. Birth attendants will use these traditional methods to help deliver babies, and unfortunately, as a result, there is a high probability of death for both the mother and the baby.

The most common communicable diseases in this area are malaria, measles, and typhoid. People often suffer from diarrhea, and many have sexually transmitted diseases. There is also a lack of immunizations for children.

Cleanliness is also a major issue. There are very few toilets so people end up using nearby bushes instead. In places where seasonal rivers run, you will find people drinking the same water they bathe in, without boiling the water.
