    Health officers will be mobilizing locals to access the services which have been made more accessible. 

    The free services are available in Westlands, Dagoretti North, Dagoretti South, Lang'ata, Kibra, Roysambu, Kasarani, Ruaraka, Embakasi South, Embakasi North, Embakasi Central, Embakasi East, Embakasi West, Makadara, Kamukunji, Starehe and Mathare.

    On Thursday, December 10, residents of Kibra, Ngando Kawangware and Kangemi obtained the medical services for free. 

    On Friday, the NMS team will be at Mukuru Fuata Nyayo, Kibra, Southlands Kijiji and Viwandani.

    The program started on  Monday, December 7, when the team visited Mukuru Fuata Nyayo in Starehe, Deep Sea estate in Westlands, Majengo and Kambiu in Kamukunji.

    Residents of Mukuru Kayaba, Mukuru kwa Ruben, Kware, Kyangombe and Manyatta KPA were attended on Tuesday while Mathare, Korogocho, Majengo, Kiambiu, and Gatari Marigu residents were served the following day.

    The program comes at a crucial time when doctors have planned to down their tools until the government addresses their concerns about safety, health insurance, and staffing needs to fight Covid-19.

    The Council of Governors has asked healthcare workers to understand the prevailing circumstances that we are facing globally, nationally and at the county levels.

    The CoG added that their concerns were being handled by a multi-agency committee headed by the Cabinet secretary of the Ministry of labour.
