The Kenya Union of Clinical Officers KUCO is calling on the government to consider annual employment of healthcare workers to bridge the existing human resource gaps in the country. 

KUCO Chairman Peterson Wachira called on the national and county governments to hold discussions and come up with a uniform and harmonised management system for human resources as well as conversion of all contractual employment terms to permanent and pensionable.

He called on the national government to shift focus to strengthening primary health facilities in the country, in an effort to reach more Kenyans with services. 

Wachira said the entry of Covid-19 has exposed the fragile health system in the country, and has led to loss of lives including those of healthcare workers in the past two years.
