Promise of Free Healthcare
Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya’s 4th president in his inauguration speech has pledged to enact free maternity and health care in Kenya, within the 1st 100 days of his presidency.
“Within the first one hundred days – we will ensure that maternity fees are abolished and that all citizens of Kenya are able to access government dispensaries and health centers free of charge.”
– President Uhuru Kenyatta
Morris Moses Foundation salutes this pledge as we have been working tirelessly with other partners on such a thing as this. We are excited about this and will continue in our quest to not only to support patients rights to the top of our new president’s priority but towards the full enactment of a patient-centered open healthcare system for all Kenyans.
Perhaps this announcement marks a new phase in our work and we would like to say we are ready to continue working with the Government and all Kenyans so that all these objectives are accomplished and more.
