KEMSA To Partner With Elgeyo Marakwet For Prompt Delivery of Drugs

The Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) will work with Elgeyo Marakwet County to deliver better health care. Authority’s CEO Terry Ramadhani said Kemsa would ensure prompt delivery of drugs ordered by the health department.

Speaking at the County Headquarters, the CEO said she was encouraged by Governor Wisley Rotich’s health plans. “I am pleased to be here today, I would like to commend Governor Wisley Rotich for the steps he has taken as far as health services is concerned. I have been closely following his activities and as an authority mandated to ensure quality supplies of medicine, we will travel this journey together to ensure that the residents of this County get quality medical care.”

She regretted that some of the drugs ordered by the county may have at times fell short, linking it with high demand of essential medicines from health facilities across the country.

“We are closing this gap. The organization is going through a change and improving on its delivery,” she said.

Deputy Governor Prof. Grace Cheserek while welcoming her termed Kemsa a mutual partner and asked the organisation to up its drug supplies system for prompt delivery of drugs.

“Kemsa is doing a good job. What I would like to point out is that drugs ordered by the county or responsible facilities are delivered as requisitioned,” she said, “we are looking forward to a fruitful engagement with you.Thank you for visiting us.”

She also asked her to support Governor Rotich’s Afya Bora program through medical camps.

The CEO said her office is always open for discussion on how delivery of hospital stores can be improved.
CEC Sports, Youth Affairs, Culture, Children and Social Service Purity Koima thanked the organisation for their support in last year’s Iten International Marathon. “I look forward to your support in our second edition that will be staged later this year,” she said.

Present was Iten County Referral Hospital medical superintendent Benjamin Kimaile among other staff.
