The World Health Organization (WHO) has cited Kenya as the leading crusader in Universal Health Coverage.

This was at the WHO 72nd Assembly, attended by First Ldy Margaret Kenyatta, who was accompanied by Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki.

WHO Director General Adhamon Ghebreyesus recognised Kenya’s milestones in ensuring Universal Health Coverage, which is in the process of being rolled out under President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big 4 agenda.

This comes as a Memorandum of Understanding was reached between the Kenya School of Government (KSG) and Amref Health Africa to train medics in the country on the universal health coverage plan.

Under the MoU, health workers from the public sector will participate in Amref’s continuous professional development courses while it also seeks to strengthen the capacity of KSG in the area of health management.
