Shortage of pathologists looms in the country

10 December 2013, 12:04 Wilshere

Nakuru - A senior Forensic Pathologist expert, Andrew Gachie has said a lot of pathologist graduates are running away from Kenya to other African countries due to poor pay.

Gachie said Kenya has only 80 qualified and certified pathologists but the number has continued to reduce in the recent years since most of them have been seeking greener pasture outside the country.

Speaking on Monday during a workshop in Nakuru, Gachie said that the government needs to come up with strategies of improving the pay of local pathologists.

He pointed out that there is need to have one pathologist in every County but said the central government must be ready to pay them well.

Gachie said that most of the pathologists prefer to venture into private hospitals since they pay well compared to working for the government.

He said it was unfortunate that Kenya has not being able to train students in the course in the past due to insufficient resources.

The senior pathologist maintained that many students are not taking the course since it is expensive and takes long - 11 years - to complete.  

Gachie also noted that pathologist in public hospitals are overworked due to the growing population in the country.

“It is sad to see we are not able to train pathologists at the same rate the population is growing in the country,” he lamented.
