Germany has committed to increasing its cooperation with Kenya to guarantee that Kenyans have access to high-quality, reasonably priced healthcare.
Dr. Nakhumicha S. Wafula, the cabinet secretary for health, met in a tripartite setting this morning with H.E. Sebastian Groth, ambassador of Germany to Kenya, and Ms. ShaheenNilofer, country office representative for UNICEF Kenya.
The CS praised the German government and UNICEF for their ongoing cooperation and support in enhancing Kenyans’ access to healthcare.
UNICEF has committed to provide humanitarian assistance to the afflicted Kenyans as they fight the country’s worst drought in 40 years, which has hit more than 23 counties and left more than 600,000 children fighting severe hunger and a rise in cholera infections.
Rebecca Miano, who was in attendance and is the cabinet secretary for the East African community, ASALs, and regional development, thanked the German government and UNICEF and noted that the bulk of the affected Kenyans live in the ASALs counties.
Josphine Mburu, who serves as the department’s principal secretary, was also in attendance.
