Drugs to avert crisis in public hospitals

25 February 2014, 20:35 Chepkwony Robert

Nakuru - Nakuru County government has hit on the road in a mission that will see distribution of drugs worth KES 72 million to 8 hospitals, 98 dispensaries and 22 health centres within the county.

The drugs purchased from the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency (KEMSA) are meant to avert the drug shortage crisis in the government health facilities within Nakuru County.

Addressing the media during, KEMSA CEO Dr. John Munyu said KEMSA was committed to the ensuring supply of drugs to all health institutions.

Dr.Munyu says KEMSA has developed a supermarket mode of operation where institutions requiring drugs will be required to place their orders and the same delivered to their door step.

“I am optimistic that the county government will deal curb issues of drugs meant for public hospitals ending up in the private hospitals,” he said.

Nakuru governor Kinuthia Mbugua while officiating the ceremony said that the budget for the county health sector has been increased by over KES 400 million in a bid to facilitate purchase of more drugs and equipments.

He said that an agreement has been reached between the council of governors and the National Government in which contracted suppliers will provide basic medical machines to county governments on a lease system so as to avoid the cumbersome procurement process.
