Kenya to deploy 100 nurses in Namimbia

17 June 2016, 09:27 George Tubei

Nairobi - The Ministry of Health will deploy 100 nurses in Namibia in July 2016 to offer health services in the country, Health Principal Secretary Dr. Nicholas Muraguri has said.

Speaking during the Nairobi Campus Kenya Medical Training students Lucheon Thursday, the PS noted that Kenyan health workers have been highly rated worldwide due to the quality of training offered by medical colleges in the country and the discipline they exhibit in their career.

"Our Kenyan nurses are respected all over the world, where they have been offered jobs due to the discipline and high professional qualifications offered in our health institutions,’’ the PS stressed.

The PS challenged the medical students to aim higher and take advantage of the foreign market where opportunities are plenty. Kenyan nurses offer services globally in countries such as the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, Lesotho and United States among others.

Currently, the PS said KMTC has 56 campuses in 35 counties out of the 47. The expansion has offered training opportunities to many health workers countrywide, who offer vibrant services to the sector both nationally and internationally.

Dr. Muraguri noted that to meet the country’s present and future health needs, it is imperative for the sector to go for new  education and in-service training options for the healthcare workforce.

He advised the students to avoid risky behaviors that can jeopardize their career such as alcoholism, drug abuse, indulgence in sex and violence and encouraged them to embrace teamwork, discipline and sacrifice.

KMTC Board, Chairman Professor Philip Kaloki said the college is the largest in Africa, with 26,000 students, training over 80 percent of health workforce in the country.

He said in the last three years, 25 new campuses have been opened.

Professor Kaloki urged the college staff and students to establish channels of communications to avoid conflict and disturbances in their learning programmes.
