Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe on Wednesday met his Tanzanian counterpart Dr. Dorothy Gwajima as part of ongoing efforts to enhance cooperation in the health sector among the two East African nations.
The two leaders, who applauded strides made by the two neighbours in improving the health standards of their people, discussed a variety of issues, including the covid-19 pandemic and the newly discovered omicron variant.
Dr. Gwajima had, in August this year, led a technical team comprising of health experts from Tanzania to Kenya for bilateral talks centred on opportunities in the health sector.
Kagwe is among a delegation from Kenya, led by President Uhuru Kenyatta, who will be in Tanzania to witness celebrations to mark 60 years of the country's independence slated for this Friday.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
