Medical Services.

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:-

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

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

  • Every village to have 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 centres.
  • 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.
