Trans Nzoia Deputy Governor Dr Stanley Tarus on Monday flagged off drugs and non-pharmaceuticals wort Sh35 million.
Speaking during the flag off ceremony the county deputy boss said they are committed to ensure citizens receive quality health care.
“As an administration we have vowed to ensure boosted delivery of quality health services to our people,”said Dr Tarus.
He said the consignment which was procured from the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) will be disbursed to all health centers across the county.
Dr Tarus also revealed that the county will be receiving another consignment worth Sh60 million from Mission for Essential Drugs and Supplies (MEDS) in April.
The Deputy Governor urged administrators of health facilities in the county to be placing orders for medical supplies in advance to avoid shortages.
“I direct administrators of health institutions to be placing advance orders for medical supplies rather than wait for stock to be depleted before placing more order,”said the Deputy Governor.
He further warned health staff against theft of drugs and pointed out that his administration will not tolerate the vice.
