Kenya: Governor Sakaja Names Taskforce to Review Healthcare Reforms in Nairobi County


Nairobi — Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja has named a Task Force to review reforms in the Nairobi County health sector.

Among the members of the task force include Professor Olive Mugenda who will be chairing the team and Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Mercy Mwangangi.

The eight-member taskforce will be tasked with assessing the status of all public health facilities, reviewing current human resource capacity as well as reviewing the supply chain management of pharma and non-pharma products.

They will also be required to assess the health information management system and propose interventions towards a comprehensive system, and review and propose an efficient health financing model.

Sakaja named Nairobi County Secretary Jairus Musumba as a representative of the Secretariat.

“The taskforce shall prepare and submit its report to the Governor of Nairobi City County Government together with its recommendations within 45 days from the date of its appointment,” Sakaja stated.

Other members of the taskforce include Dr. Anastacia Nyalita, Dr. Githinji Gitahi, Dorcas Kemunto, Dr. Mercy Mwangangi, Dr. William Fryda and Karei Mwenda as members of the taskforce.

In addition, the taskforce will advise or help on any area they may find necessary.

Sakaja’s move to appoint a taskforce comes just days after he made an impromptu visit at the Mama Lucy hospital and was dismayed at the condition of the facility.
