KEMSA donates medical commodities worth Ksh 54.7M to Trans Nzoia


Health services in Trans Nzoia County have received a boost following distribution of drugs and non-pharmaceuticals worth Ksh 54.7 million to health facilities.

Deputy County Governor Stanley Tarus, accompanied by County Executive Committee Member (CECM) for Health, Claire Wanyama flagged off the consignment at the county headquarters Monday.

Addressing reporters, Tarus assured area residents of the county administration’s commitment toward enhancing living standards through the provision of good health services.

In order to ensure prudent use of the drugs and non-pharmaceuticals, the deputy county boss said that Trans Nzoia Public Service Board had recruited nine qualified pharmacists and 19 information technologists.

Tarus warned of dire consequences for any health personnel or individual that will be found culpable of diverting the drugs.

The consignment of drugs and non-pharmaceuticals received from Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) under the Universal Health Care programme will be distributed to all public health facilities in the county.
