In a bid to bolster healthcare delivery in Taita Taveta County, the Government of Kenya has allocated a substantial sum of 94 million shillings.

This allocation, announced by Health Cabinet Secretary Nakhumicha during the commemoration of National Cervical Cancer Awareness Month at Mwatunge grounds, signifies a strategic collaboration between national and county administrations.

CS Nakhumicha emphasized that the 94 million shillings injection is a significant boost towards achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) objectives.

 The funds will be instrumental in various initiatives aimed at improving healthcare accessibility and quality within the county.

One notable aspect of the allocation is the distribution of fully equipped kits and mobile devices to local Community Health Promoters (CHPs).

These resources underscore the government’s commitment to enhancing digital healthcare at the grassroots level and empowering healthcare champions within communities.

Furthermore, CS Nakhumicha highlighted the importance of local healthcare facilities in driving the government’s Bottom-up Economic Transformation Agenda (Beta). The funding will support the upgrading and development of dispensaries and clinics, ensuring that essential medical services are readily available to residents.

With this allocation, the government reaffirms its dedication to fostering a robust healthcare system that leaves no one behind.
