Universal healthcare seeks to partner with NHIF to ensure that the people of kisumu county worry about other things other than medical bills. in the governor’s words, poverty should not be a reason for not getting quality medical attention. The program also seeks to bring health services as close as possible to the people. It projects that by the year 2022 Its scope will have been implemented in totality.
we hope that all stakeholders including the national government will hold hands to see that universal healthcare is implemented in its totality.
