The three are Mr. Chandra Arya, Mrs. Stephanie Kusie and Mr. Scott Simms. While speaking during the assessment tour, they made an assurance of continued support from the Canadian government to the county’s healthcare sector. Mama Lucy Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr Musa Mohamed has supported the partnership, saying that the tour is a farmiliarisation process but the TB treatment is a preserve of county government. Mohammed says that so far the facility has benefitted in training of pediatric TB health care workers, support to community health volunteers, supply of modern TB diagnosis equipment and other medical education among others. “So far they are helping us contain pediatric TB but we are now appealing to the Canadian government to extend the aid to TB treatment among adults,” adds Dr Mohammed. Nairobi County is part of 9 counties in Kenya receiving healthcare donor fund support from Canadian government valued at USD1m.
