USAID Uongozi wa Afya Thabiti Coordination and Harmonization of Health Sector Regulatory and Oversight Functions in Kenya

The Kenya Healthcare Federation under the USAID’s Uongozi wa Afya Thabiti program organized a two-day meeting between the Ministry of Health and healthcare regulatory bodies in Kenya. The objective was the coordination and harmonization of the healthcare regulatory landscape.
The discussions focused around the regulation of regulated and unregulated cadres as well as the vision for the new regulatory landscape. A task force will be formed under the Ministry of Health to lead the way.

In his speech, John Kuehnle of USAID noted that Kenya’s efforts towards attaining UHC and PHC are being recognized globally and he emphasized that establishing clear roles and responsibilities of the country’s regulatory landscape will enable these efforts. Acting DG Dr. Amoth explored the various challenges and opportunities facing healthcare regulation in Kenya and he implored all present to take a deep dive into the topic and come up with radical decisions for the good of Kenyans.
