The Nairobi City County Executive Committee Member for Health, Wellness and Nutrition, Dr. Anastasia Nyalita represented Governor Sakaja Johnson as the Chief Guest at St. Scholastica Uzima Hospital Fraternity for thanksgiving and Official Launch of the Surgical Unit.
Dr. Nyalita in her remarks noted “I recognize your alignment with Universal Health Coverage to increase your service portfolio to the population you serve while ensuring financial protection. In addition, your efforts reflect the findings in the Nairobi City County Health Reforms Task Force Report of January 2023 I.e. Strengthen Primary Healthcare, increase Curative services, and adopt modern efficient quality processes that are monitored and evaluated.

This is crucial to bridge the existing gap to access of Quality Health Services. Our mantra is to ensure that Nairobi County must work to the benefit of all residents in Nairobi and beyond. My office, with the support of the Governor of Nairobi County, commits to support your efforts to serve the people of Nairobi and Kenya at large.”
