Governor James Ongwae flags off a consignment of essential drugs worth Ksh. 31 million

Kisii County Governor James Ongwae today flagged off a consignment of essential drugs worth Ksh. 31 million, purchased from Kenya Medical Supplies Agency (KEMSA), to all county hospitals.

The drugs worth Ksh. 27 million were dispatched to 127 health facilities while the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital (KTRH) received a consignment valued at Ksh. 4 million.

Governor Ongwae reiterated his government’s bid to continue improving healthcare services for residents adding that the county will receive another consignment worth Ksh. 40 million next month.

“In this financial year, my administration increased funding for drugs from Ksh. 150 million to Ksh. 200 million. At the same time, I intend to operationalize 32 new facilities bringing to a total of 159 public functional facilities in the county,” he said.

Ongwae announced plans to establish a drug revolving pharmacy in all sub counties to minimize stock outs, set up IV fluid manufacturing plant at the KTRH and construct inpatient pharmacy at the facility. “We have put down measures among them branding of county drugs, development of a drug distribution system to digitize distribution among others to ensure our drugs are used aptly”, said Ongwae.

The function was attended by Chairman of Health Committee and Kisii Central Member of County Assembly (MCA) Wilfred Monyenye, Chief Officer in charge of Health Ms. Sarah Abuki, Chief Officer in charge of Administration Patrick Lumumba, KTRH Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Dr. Enoch Ondari among other officers.
