Kitui Governor Dr. Julius Malombe has affirmed his administration’s commitment to partner with the Catholic Medical Mission Board Kenya (CMMB) to guarantee the residents a functional and reliable healthcare system.
Governor Malombe said his government will continue working closely with the medical agency to ensure success of its healthcare initiatives not only in Kitui South Sub-County but also other parts of the county.
He was speaking earlier today when a CMMB team led by the Country Director Dr. James Kisia paid him a courtesy call in his office.
The County Chief also thanked CMMB for their continued cooperation and for complementing efforts of the County Health Ministry towards provision of quality healthcare services to Kitui South residents.
“We are also grateful that you have tirelessly supported engagement of our Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) who are pivotal in accessibility of medical services at the grass-roots,” he added.
On her part, the Executive Committee Member for Health and Sanitation Dr. Winnie Kitetu requested CMMB to train the 2,470 CHVs across the county who will be engaged from next year.
Acting Chief Officer Dr. Allan Owino, County Community Health Services Coordinator Sharia Mbui, County Newborn and Child Coordinator Christine Sammy and CCMB’s Program Manager Jesse Kihuha were also present.
