Boost for Maternal and Child Health as Aga Khan Foundation launches kshs.117 million project in Kisii

Expectant mothers, newborns and children under five years in Kisii County are set to benefit from a KShs.117million Maternal and Child Health project.

On Wednesday, Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi laid the foundation stone for a new maternal and child health block and a theatre at Kenyenya Sub County Hospital in Bomachoge Borabu.

The project funded by the Aga Khan Development Network and dubbed ‘Access to Quality Care through Extending and Strengthening Health Systems (AQCESS)’ will significantly boost availability, quality and utilization of essential services for expectant mothers, newborns and children under five.

The four-year project whose implementation began in 2016 will also benefit 10 community units through improvement of facilities and capacity building for health workers.

Maangi who launched the construction of a Maternal and Child Health block, a new maternity theatre and renovation of the existing maternity block thanked Global Affairs Canada, the Aga Khan Hospital, Kisumu, the Aga Khan Foundation and Aga Khan University for supporting the project.

“Statistics show that only 52 per cent of expectant mothers in Bomachoge Borabu deliver in hospitals endangering their lives and that of the unborn children. Construction of this theatre will facilitate access to specialized services like Caesarean Sections reducing referrals to Kisii,” said Maangi.

During the occasion, the county also received medical equipment worth KShs.4.5million including incubators, weighing scales, delivery beds, autoclave machines, postnatal beds and a generator.

Maangi assured residents of Kisii that the County Government continues to invest substantial resources to improve healthcare service delivery.

The Aga Khan Foundation Country Programme Officer Angela Ng’etich said the programme was a global initiative implemented in Kenya, Mozambique, Mali and Pakistan. She said the Aga Khan Foundation would partner with the County Government to further improve health services.

She confirmed that already 100 community health volunteers have been trained to conduct health promotion activities adding that the foundation is improving services in 10 community unities in the sub county.

Members of the Kisii County Assembly present led by Leader of Majority Timothy Ogugu and area MCA Amos Onderi (Bokimonge ward) called on the county to allocate more funds to sub county hospitals.

“I am delighted to witness the launch of this important project as it will benefit many people. We urge the County Government to provide X-ray services and a mortuary in Kenyenya to ease the suffering of our people,” said Onderi.
