Healthcare tops Ruto's agenda as Kenyans mark Mashujaa Day

President William Ruto has outlined a raft of health reforms his government is taking with a major focus on shifting from curative to preventive healthcare as well as making healthcare affordable to all Kenyans not just who can pay.

Speaking at Kericho Green Stadium which has been renamed after Kiprugut Chumo, the first Kenyan to win an Olympic medal, the Head of State said that the national government was partnering with counties to take healthcare close to the people. This was by hiring Community Health Promoters and increasing the spending of budget on health ministry in rolling out the Universal Health Coverage.

Other notable wins for the Kenya Kwanza government as it celebrated its first year in office was onboarding government services from 300 to 13000 by the end of this year, said President Ruto. This promoted efficiency in revenue collection and convenience to access government products and services.
