Principal Secretary of the Ministry of Health's State Department for Public Health and Professional Standards, Dr. Josephine Mburu, visited Uasin Gishu County today to assess the progress of preparations for World Tuberculosis Day, which will take place on March 24th, 2023.
During the visit, the PS commended the County Government, AMPATH, Centre of Health Solutions (CHS), and other stakeholders for their involvement in the preparations and their commitment to sustaining TB prevention, diagnosis, and treatment beyond World TB Day.
The PS also reiterated the government's commitment to strengthening primary level health facilities with adequate test kits and equipment to facilitate the diagnosis of TB and other ailments at the community level. This is in line with the government's efforts to bring health services closer to the people and achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
The commemorations will be held at Huruma grounds to raise awareness in the community about TB and its prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
