“The new system will be less burdening and people-centred”

NAIROBI, Kenya – The Kenyan government is rebuilding its healthcare system, making it more efficient and effective.President Ruto made the remarks on Friday during the celebrations to mark the 60th Mashujaa Day at the Kericho Green Stadium, now Wilson Kiprugut Stadium.

He said the new system would be less burdening and people-centred noting that it would be progressive, responsive and sustainable.

“Kenya’s (healthcare system) will be a shining example to the world,” he said.

The medical care sytem, Ruto said, would be supported by a strong team of motivated, amply-equipped and adequately-trained health workers.

It was his government’s plan that every Kenyan had access to quality care when they needed it, without a strain on their income.

First Lady Rachel Ruto, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Angola Tete Antonio, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, his spouse Dorcas Rigathi and Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi were present at the event.

Ruto said efforts had been made in 2003, 2013 and 2018 to achieve the Universal Health Coverage with minimal success and “that is why we identified healthcare delivery as one of the core pillars of our Agenda”.

He added that several commitments had been made to ensure the delivery of this grand plan.

These included the provision of a fully-financed primary healthcare, the installation of a digital health management information system and the setting up of a fund for improving medical facilities.

He said every Kenyan would have a Social Insurance Fund Card and these would give Kenyans access to health services regardless their income.

“Access to healthcare will no longer be pay-based; it will be informed by the health needs of every Kenyan,” he said.

Kenyans would also enjoy significant free medical care services as well as have a voice in the management of facilities.

“In your villages, you will have a committee that will participate in their management and ensure that they are equipped.”

Public health facilities will have financial autonomy to ensure better utilisation of funds. – APO
