The enactment of a new constitution which outlines a framework to alleviate poverty, with a focus on improving governance and addressing inequalities in health, education, and economic growth has seen counties engaging in innovative measure to strengthen the national health care system. It is with this focus that Kiambu County through its Governor Willam Kabogo launched the county’s Health Strategic Plan that seeks to promote access to health care. Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) under the Global Fund programme participated in the launch by showcasing activities being implemented across KRCS and its partners Zinduka Africa and United Disability Empowerment Kenya.
