- The First Lady commended the German Government through the KFW Development Bank and the Aga Khan University Hospital for the donation
First Lady Mama Rachel Ruto on Friday flagged off mobile clinics, fridges and transportation freezers at State House, Nairobi.
The equipment will benefit seven counties including Baringo, Marsabit, Samburu, Turkana, West Pokot, Mandera, and Isiolo.
A Team of eight nurses and drivers will also receive training as part of knowledge-sharing and the continuous improvement of the health sector.
The First Lady commended the German Government through the KFW Development Bank and the Aga Khan University Hospital for the donation that aligns with the Healthcare Pillar of the Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA).
"The recent enactment of laws to support universal health coverage is poised to change the way Kenyans access healthcare services by ensuring that the care they need is availed to them timely and nearer to where they live," Aga Khan University Hospital CEO Rashid Khalani said.
Ministry of Health CS Susan Nakhumicha said the ministry will deliver universal health to Kenyans.
"We have moved away from only focusing on curative services and have gone back to promoting healthcare, preventing diseases, and rehabilitating those around us. Primary healthcare is the game changer for universal healthcare and the mobile clinics will be a key in this new approach, especially in the beneficiary counties."
