Ministry to deploy Cuban doctors to counties
The Ministry of Health has stated that the 100 Specialist Doctors from Cuba will be sent to the counties to fill the gaps in hospitals where there are few or no specialist doctors.
Health CS Sicilly Kariuki says the doctors will be employed by the County governments for a duration of two years and each county will receive two doctors.
Kariuki says the doctors will help the county hospitals to attend to minor illnesses instead of refering patients to KNH and Moi Referals hospitals.
She says the Ministry will soon upgrade hospitals within the Counties to decongest Referral hospitals that are receiving patients from all over the Country.
