2nd Patient Rights Dissemination Forum
Sponsored by IPAS Kenya and hosted by the Medical Practitioners and Dentist Board, the 2nd rights dissemination forum took place on Thur 26th June.
Participants from ranging from MCAs to medical superintendents. Prof. Fred Segor, Principle Secretary of Health, graced the occasion as the guest of honor. Also in attendance were the Morris Moses Foundation, Nursing Council, Clinical Officers’ board and Pharmacy & poisons Board The topic of more nurses who speak sign language was brought up and the nursing council together with the ministry promised to address it. Currently there are already a few practicing nurses who have training in sign language. We were able to disseminate 1000 charters together with IPAS booklets on safe abortion. So far we have been able to cover 27 counties, which is half way there. We still recognize that there is a lot more to go as well as follow up on the counties we have already covered.
