1 min read

Kenya has been ranked as having the second-best healthcare system in Africa according to a report released by Numbeo. The world’s largest cost of living database revealed that only South Africa surpassed Kenya in terms of the quality of healthcare offered to its citizens.

Health CS Susan Nakhumicha commented on the report, stating, “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our healthcare professionals and the ongoing efforts to improve our healthcare infrastructure.”

The Health Care Index, which evaluates the overall quality of the healthcare system, including healthcare professionals, equipment, staff, doctors, and costs, scored Kenya at an impressive 61.1.

Numbeo also uses the Health Care Exp Index to emphasize the positive aspects of a healthcare system, where Kenya scored an impressive 108.3. President William Ruto’s administration is seeking to improve the healthcare system through the rollout of the Social Health Insurance Fund (SHIF).

President Ruto expressed his excitement about the ranking, stating, “This recognition is a significant milestone for Kenya’s healthcare sector. It reaffirms our commitment to providing quality healthcare for all our citizens.”

This recognition positions Kenya as the only East African nation in the top 7 countries in Africa offering quality healthcare. Once fully implemented, Kenya aims to join an elite club dominated by developed nations that offer universal health coverage to its citizens.
