The County Executive in charge of Health services Mrs. Everlyne Rotich has urged all health staff to strive towards enhancing service delivery to “wananchi” in all health facilities across the county.
Speaking while in a meeting on Performance monitoring and accountability results for the Department of Health Services, Mrs. Rotich stressed on the need to get innovative ways to inform patients on the importance of family planning.
Performance Monitoring For Action 2030 (PMA) purposed to give feedback on family planning activities done by Challenge Initiative (TCI) in the last financial year.
Family planning can prevent closely spaced and ill-timed pregnancies and births, which contribute to some of the world’s highest maternal and neonatal mortality rates”, said Mrs. Rotich.
Mrs. Rotich further notes that “Infants of mothers who die as a result of giving birth also have a greater risk of death and poor health”.
The discussions focused on ways to improve the quality of care at the facilities and ensure that accurate data is provided. The staff were urged to take time to plan, forecast and ensure that they maintained adequate commodities and record and enter data in DHIS 2.
