CS requests for increased budgetary allocation to support attainment of Universal Health Coverage

Health CS Sicily Kariuki has requested for increased budgetary allocation for the Ministry of Health to support attainment of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and improvement of health sector service delivery.

Addressing the National Assembly Departmental Committee on Health and Senior Ministry of Health officials during a retreat in Mombasa today, she assured the committee that resources for the ministry will be used prudently.

The CS commended the Parliamentary Committee for guiding the ministry to achieve its goals and promised to provide any information to the committee that would help improve services in the health sector.

She said the ministry will work closely with county governments to ensure achievement of UHC which is one of the Government’s big four agenda.

 

She informed that the Ministry has advertised the position of Director General of Health who will be the overall technical officer to the ministry.
