Can we trust you?

06 Oct

The Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission (KACC) has released a report on Massive corruption and mismanagement in the public healthcare sector.
The report focuses on two ministries, Medical Services and Public Health. The ministries are accused of sloppy supervision, frequent shortage of drugs, theft of drugs and other medical supplies, absenteeism by medical staff, flawed procurement processes and unnecessary referral of patients to private clinics, which is, in a way, corruption.
It has also come to the attention of the public that most health facilities are managed by physicians who have little or no training as managers. As a result, health insurers like the NHIF are prone to health care fraud and at times patients are billed for services that were not rendered.
So the question begs; can we trust you with additional funding? How genuine are your ongoing reforms?

    i think they should first deal with the issues at hand then they can approach us after we see their improvement.
