The health sector in Elgeyo Marakwet County received a major boost following flagging off a consignment of drugs worth Sh52 million from Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA).
Elgeyo Marakwet Deputy Governor Wisley Rotich officially flagged off the consignment on Monday morning.
The Deputy Governor reiterated the county government’s bid to continue improving health care services for residents.
“Today, we are flagging off essential medicines for our health facilities to ensure adequacy of drug supply. We have done our best to ensure steady supply of drugs for our people,” said Rotich.
He urged residents to be vigilant and report cases of drug shortage in their local health facilities.
“Wananchi are free to give us feedback on shortage of drugs at the grassroots. This will help monitor drug distribution for efficiency,” he added.
The County Government has set up a number for residents to give feedback from their localities on whether a facility near them has any case of drug shortage.
