Health and Sanitation

Health of our community is paramount if we are to achieve any agenda for the county. Currently we have a number of health facilities which are catering for our community. If we build our roads then we need to revamp the health institutions as follows:-

  1. Increase the number of fully equipped hospitals.
  2. Equip the current medical institutions and;
  3. Partner with other counties to increase the number of specialised clinics .
  4. Promote preventive measures by observing proper sanitation

 

Measures to improve access to health care facilities in the county are:

  • Every village to have a dispensary with at least a clinical officer to prescribe drugs.
  • Every ward should have an ambulance to facilitate movement of casualties/ patients to the health facility.
  • Partner with the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) to help the residents pay their medical bills or create a medical fund where they are able to make contributions, which enable them pay their medical expenses.
  • Sufficient supply of drugs and equipments in the already existing facilities.
  • Presence of a medical facility to offer maternity services in every ward to reduce infant mortality rates and birth-related complications.
  • Source through cost effective method quality drugs for our health facilities.
  • Establish a viable social health insurance for all county residents
