Kericho Prepares for Mashujaa Day with Health Initiatives and Medical Expo

Kericho County is abuzz with preparations for this year’s highly anticipated Mashujaa Day celebrations, an event that promises to be particularly meaningful with a strong focus on Universal Health Coverage (UHC). Under the Bottom-up Transformation Agenda (BETA), the Ministry of Health has orchestrated a series of activities to emphasize the importance of accessible and comprehensive healthcare for all.

One of the highlights of these preparations is the launch of Primary Health Care Networks (PCN). These networks are designed to create a seamless link between community-based health services and healthcare facilities, fostering a more integrated approach to delivering medical care. This move seeks to bolster the county’s commitment to improving healthcare accessibility and quality.

In addition to the PCN launch, Kericho County is hosting a week-long Medical Camp from October 9th to 18th, spanning all six sub-counties. During this camp, a wide range of health services will be available to residents. These services include screenings for diseases like breast and cervical cancer, Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs), hypertension, and diabetes. Immunizations, deworming, family planning, treatment for minor illnesses, HIV testing, and blood drives are also part of this comprehensive healthcare offering. The medical camp underscores the county’s dedication to the well-being of its people.

Kericho County is gearing up for a four-day Medical Expo from October 16th to 19th at Kapkatet Stadium. This event brings together stakeholders from both the public and private sectors, offering them a platform to showcase medical services, products, and technological innovations in healthcare. The Medical Expo will delve into themes such as Primary Health Care, health information systems, digitization, innovation, human resources for health, and innovative healthcare financing models.

The county is also set to inaugurate an oxygen plant at the Kericho County Referral Hospital, further highlighting the commitment to providing quality healthcare to its residents. The comprehensive approach reflects Kericho’s dedication to health and progress as the region gears up to celebrate its heroes on Mashujaa Day.
