According to President William Ruto, county administrations and his administration worked together to find community health promoters (CHPs) around the nation.
As per to the Head of State, who spoke on Thursday at the 60th Madaraka Day celebrations at the Moi Stadium in Embu, one health promoter will be in charge of 100 families.
President Ruto explained, “This means that each promoter will be tasked with visiting Kenyans at their homes to assess whether any conditions need to be managed through healthier lifestyle choices or fundamental medical attention.”
In order to prevent the need for hospitalization, the Health Promoters will also be tasked with assisting persons with chronic diseases manage their prescription medications, diets, and general wellbeing.
The promotion will concurrently make it simpler to recognize ailments early so they may be referred for complete attention in order to manage healthcare efficiently.
Owing to the Head of State, these measures will give the country’s healthcare system new energy and allow Kenyans to receive high-quality medical care while unwinding in their own homes.
As stated by President Ruto, eradicating sickness is a top priority for his administration.
In order to satisfy the pressing needs of Kenyans at the bottom of the socioeconomic pyramid, he said that one element of the plan to revitalize health care will be revamping the National Health Insurance Fund to realize its function as a social medical insurance institution.
The president has stated that the administration is also dedicated to implementing universal health coverage, which will enable every Kenyan to access respectable healthcare for a reasonable monthly charge.
