The Korean Government has donated 10 utility vehicles to support delivery of health services across the country.

The vehicles were received by the Principal Secretary for Health Eng. Peter Tum from the Korean Ambassador to Kenya Young Dae Kwon through Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).

The Ministry has been partnering with KOICA in a three year Maternal and Child Health (MCH), outreach programme in Kajiado County since 2016. The programme is aimed at improving accessibility of health services, raise awareness of health in Kenya and improve service readiness in the health care facilities.

The PS thanked the Government of Korea for the support noting that it has a big positive impact on Kenyans. “It is the Ministry’s desire to work with the Government of Korea in advancing the Universal Health Coverage agenda for all Kenyans,” he said.

He acknowledged that the programme has recorded numerous achievements with 23,280 residents benefiting from the outreaches. They have also donated 20 motorcycles and assisted the development of reporting tools for Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs), Community Health Coordinators (CHCs), Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) and supply of CHV kits.

The PS said under capacity building 64 staff have been trained on Basic Emergency Maternal Obstetric Care, 80 on family planning in particular best practice in Contraceptive Care, and 80 on Integrated Disease Surveillance Response (IDSR).

KOICA has also provided blood pressure machines, thermometers, weighing scales among other equipment which have helped the health facilities to offer services better, the PS said.
