Danish Govt pledges more aid for Kenya's Health Sector

22 August 2014, 15:31 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The Danish Government will continue funding programs in Kenya's health sector as long as such funds are seen to benefit patients directly, the Danish Minister for International Trade and Development Co-operation Mogens Jensen has said.

Jensen said his government will donate more money where it is needed to enable citizens live dignified healthy lives.

He said in line with the country's new administrative regime, his government will now transfer such funds directly to counties where they will be supporting programs.

“We shall be expecting the highest level of accountability for such funds,” he noted.

Jensen made the remarks at Narumoru Catholic Dispensary after he visited Reaching the Base of the Pyramid (BOP) in Kenya Project.

The program has assisted in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes by reducing by two thirds the cost of insulin that diabetics need to manage the disease.

The program, implemented in partnership with community health facilities and Danish Pharmaceutical Company, Novo Nordisk Pharma Gulf, has not only increased the number of patients accessing diabetes treatment, but also reduced the cost of insulin from KES 1 800 to KES 500.

The clinical officer in charge of the project at the dispensary, John Ndirangu said the project which started two years ago has encouraged more people to seek treatment for the disease, saying the number of patients have increased from 30 a month two years ago to about 90 currently.
