Citizen TV: 800Million allocated to revamp healthcare in Mandera.The Mandera County government has allocated over 800 million shillings in this financial year to revamp healthcare provision.
Mandera Governor Ali Roba says his government has already advertised for about 160 positions in the health sector. The county is also seeking to secure the supplies line and reorganize management of the health systems to bolster health services. Saying the current standoff over devolution of health workers could paralyse services, the governor called on the ministry of devolution to resolve the dispute.
The recent Kenya Population Situation Analysis report released by Ministry of Devolution and Planning paints a grim picture, in which an estimated 4,000 of 100,000 expectant women die annually in Mandera –
Truly a National Shame!
