LeHHO Participants Form Committee to Analyse Healthcare Agenda

  Jun 22, 2012

“We have a duty and a responsibility to ourselves as senior healthcare officials and our country to bring the national healthcare agenda forward to a point where it can be recognized as a national agenda,” LeHHO Participants, 2012.

Healthcare in Kenya should be accessible and affordable to the common mwananchi. This was the unison agreement echoed by the Leading High-Performing Healthcare Organisations (LeHHO) participants during the third module that was held in Naivasha. The participants felt that there is a need to push the healthcare agenda forward and align it with the national development agenda.

In their resolution to become agents of change, the participants formed a committee that will analyse and advise on the national healthcare action plan and implement it in a bid to improve the healthcare system in Kenya.

This will be one of the positive steps that will be taken by the senior healthcare officials to ensure that all Kenyan citizens are provided with quality healthcare.

The participants extended their gratitude to the Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and Strathmore Business School (SBS) and through the funding of USAID for creating LeHHO, which is a one of a kind executive healthcare program which brings together various senior healthcare officials from different sectors to learn, interact and share knowledge and ideas to improve healthcare in the country. The program has shown that there is a need for healthcare members from various departments to together as a team.

The committee members include:

  • Dr. John Odondi – Primary Health, Ministry of Public Health Services
