First Lady donates 17th Beyond Zero clinic to Nyeri

21 January 2015, 20:40 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Kenya’s First Lady Margaret Kenyatta has donated the 17th mobile clinic to Nyeri County in her Beyond Zero campaign.

Speaking during the event held at Chaka grounds in Kieni east Sub-County, Margaret observed that through the mobile clinics medics have been able to reach some of the remotest parts of the country offering health services to women and children.

She said the clinics are targeting to reduce maternal deaths of women and children.

According to statics from Nyeri County health department, last year 16 women died while delivering.

The County further recorded more than 15,500 deliveries with about 2000 being conducted at home by mid-wives.

Margaret however expressed concerns over high prevalence rate of HIV/AIDs in Nyeri County which currently stands at 4.4 percent.

“By end of 2013 there were 20,797 people living with HIV in Nyeri County, of whom 9 per cent were children. The county also had about 1,307 new adult infections in 2013,” she noted.

This was brought by rapid development and urbanization.

“We need to scale up HIV testing; to counsel and reduce the risk for those who test negative, and to link those who test positive to care and treatment programmes,” she added.

Margaret stated that in order to reduce spread of HIV, authorities and other stakeholders should enhance fight against substance abuse and alcoholism amongst the youth.

The event was attended by area deputy governor Samuel Wamathai and Governor Nderitu Gachagua’s wife Margaret Nderitu who was accompanied by more than 17 governors’ spouses from various counties in the country.
