Nairobi, Kenya (, 2023) – The Cabinet Secretary for Health, Dr. Nakhumicha S Wafula, met with the leadership of the Kenya National Union of Nurses to discuss pressing issues affecting the nursing profession. Among the key topics of discussion were the re-negotiation of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) and contractual engagements for nurses.
The meeting comes at a crucial time when nurses in Kenya have been pushing for better pay and working conditions.
