The Nairobi County Health Services department has commenced the distribution of medical supplies to all health facilities in the city as directed by Governor Johnson Sakaja.
While flagging off medical commodities worth Ksh 244M delivered by the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency (KEMSA) in February this year, Governor Sakaja promised the people of Nairobi a functional health system.
Specifically, he undertook to ensure health facilities are well-equipped and stocked with necessary pharmaceuticals and non-pharmaceuticals.
Chief Officer for Health Facilities Geoffrey Mosiria noted that the county has procured additional commodities worth Ksh 160M which are being distributed to all county hospitals.
“The sector has received a further additional boost of Ksh 350M to procure more medical supplies to ensure Nairobians’ health needs continue to be taken care of,” added Mosoria
The Chief Officer was accompanied by Lindi MCA, Jera Ochieng, Laini Saba MCA John Musila Kaende, and their Highrise counterpart Kennedy Odhiambo Oyugu, during the launch of distribution of medical supplies in Langata, and Kibra constituencies.
The Health Services Chief Officer indicated that the distribution exercise will continue for the next seven days covering all 17 sub-counties.
