Let­ting coun­ties man­age health­care bad for our health

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The big­gest mis­take we all made with this devo­lu­tion ex­per­i­ment was to de­volve the health­care func­tion. The av­er­age Kenyan is suf­fer­ing due to poor health ser­vices in pub­lic hos­pi­tals. The deaths in these fa­cil­i­ties are a com­mon oc­cur­rence. We have con­ve­niently been sucked into the now-nor­mal cor­rup­tion and tribal shenani­gans at the county level. It is high time to asses and eval­u­ate the loop­holes that are there, some cost­ing us bil­lions of shillings. In less than a week the medics are go­ing to down their tools. These are is­sues we must fix.
