WHO Boss Tedros Adhamon Visits Kenya For Universal Health Care Talks

The trip will focus on the progress of the health sector, Adhamon told journalists outside Afya House in Nairobi on Tuesday.

UHC is one of the four pillars of the president’s last term in office

Adhamon said: “You all know how passionate I am about UHC. I want to see what the Kenyan government is doing to ensure it is achieved.”

WHO challenged countries earlier this month to roll out Universal Health coverage to reduce the impoverishment associated with payment for health services.

The global agency’s primary role is to direct international health within the United Nations’ system. It leads partners in global health responses.

In a statement on its website, the organisation said 100 million people are still pushed into extreme poverty because of health expenses.

the World Health Organization boss will go to UN headquarters for another meeting after meeting Uhuru and Health Cabinet.

His last stop will be Kiambu Level five hospital at about 4pm.
