USAID To Donate $250 Million To Kenya To Aid In The Fight Against Malaria and HIV/AIDS
The Government of Kenya and its Development Partners are working together towards achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) through concerted efforts.
The Principal Secretary of the State Department of Public Health and Professional Standards, Dr. Josephine Mburu, on Friday met with the Health Director of USAID Kenya, John Kuenhle, to discuss strategies for strengthening preventive, promotive, and community health services as key drivers for UHC.
During the meeting, Dr. Mburu reiterated the government's commitment to working with all stakeholders to provide Kenyans with better healthcare services.
She emphasized the need for more support in priority areas such as Human Resources for Health (HRH) and digital health information systems.
"USAID has been a key player in the Kenyan health sector, committing approximately $250 million towards the prevention and control of HIV and Malaria, promotion of child and maternal health, and Global Health Security," the Ministry of Health stated.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
