During a meeting with health Cabinet Secretary Susan Nakhumincha, Njuguna said Primary health care will address health services crucial in preventing diseases such as diarrhoea,malaria and zoonotic disease outbreaks caused by climate change.

Lauding the Ministry of Health’s achievements, PATH highlighted the successful training and deployment of 248 Primary Care Network master trainers to all 47 counties across the country.

“PATH Kenya remains committed to supporting government health priorities and will continue working closely with the Ministry of Health in the UHC roll-out in Kenya,” said Njuguna.
