1 min read

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua says the government is intensifying reforms in the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) to make it more inclusive and responsive to healthcare needs of Kenyans.

Speaking at the Heart-to-Heart Run in Nairobi on Saturday, DP Gachagua said the Ruto administration was keen on lifting the burden brought by expensive medical care on poor Kenyans.

“The Kenya Kwanza Administration is implementing reforms in the Health Sector, specifically the National Hospital Insurance Fund. We are determined to increase access to quality healthcare and reduce the burden on our people, especially the vulnerable,” he said.

The annual Heart-Heart Foundation Run initiated by the Karen Hospital celebrated its 30 years since its inception on Saturday.

Funds raised from it are used to treat children with heart diseases.  

The DP welcomed the Run saying hundreds of children had benefitted from it over the years.

“As we embark on this year’s Heart Run, we are collectively determined to make a mark in every child’s heart through the funds raised. That is how we will build a society where no child suffers for lack of access to quality healthcare,” he stated.

The DP was joined in the walk by Woman Representatives Esther Passaris (Nairobi), Ann Wamuratha (Kiambu) and MPs Felix Odiwour Jalang’o (Langata), Benjamin Gathiru Mejjadonk (Embakasi Central), Beatrice Elachi (Dagoretti North) among other leaders and hundreds of children.
