The committee chaired by Njuguna Mwaura recommended measures that will boost service delivery in the sector.

The committee had identified areas that needed support and improvement to ensure the delivery of quality and affordable health services to county residents geared towards Universal health.

The committee had recommended that the county government should ensure that all of its residents are registered through biometric process.

The county will also get two trauma centres, one along Nakuru-Nairobi Highway and another along Nakuru-Eldoret Highway.

“The Department of Health services should establish forensic morgues to cater for accident cases with cold rooms for preservation of bodies,” read part of the report.

Efforts made in improving health service delivery will enable the county government to move towards realizing the Universal Health Care (UHC) coverage for its residents.

“The Nakuru Universal Health Care Program should cover curative and rehabilitative health care,” stated the report.

The Directorate of ICT in the recommendation was asked to ensure that all health facilities are connected with internet.

The internet will enable the health facilities to send patients’ data within departments and also from one health facility to another.
