Catholic bishops want Cuban doctors to also work in faith-based facilities
His sentiments were echoed by the Diocese of Embu Catholic Bishop Paul Kariuki who challenged all Kenyans to ensure they are registered with the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) to be able to access good healthcare.
The two spoke at Consolata Mission Hospital Kyeni during the launch of the hospital’s digital Radiology Centre and five-year strategic plan.
The hospital serves patients from Embu, Tharaka-Nithi and Kirinyaga Counties among other counties in Mt. Kenya region.
Cuban doctors arrived in Kenya on June 6 and spent a month at the Government School of Science before being deployed to the counties.
They include three radiologists, 5 nephrologists, orthopaedic surgeons, plastic surgeons and neurologists.
The government said the specialists from Cuba, will build capacity in Level 4 and Level 5 hospitals across the country.
