In 2014 we launched the very first Boresha Afya Star Awards, BASA.
Our focus was to recognise health care workers who stood out despite the different challenges they face. We gave the patients the opportunity to give us feedback and help us recognise anyone they felt went beyond the call of duty to make their experience in a hospital a better one.
Based on the information we got, we managed to acknowledge the efforts of a number of individuals in different counties.
Some of the counties represented include Nairobi, Narok, Marsabit and Kiambu.
Dr. Lusweti of Thika level 5, who was one of the most voted stars, was part of the team that accompanied Alice to the annual Planetree conference in Chicago where Alice was a speaker on rewarding excellence.
The team also had an opportunity to interact with medics from different parts of the world where Patient Centred care is being practised as well as visit a few hospitals that have been able to perfect Patient centred care.
This year we hope to be able to have even more medics attending the conference.
