ODM leader Raila Odinga has promised universal healthcare from next year if he becomes president.
He said quality healthcare remains a pipedream for many Kenyans decades after independence.
Raila said his administration would increase the doctor-to-patient ratio to international standards. “We will upgrade facilities and evenly distribute doctors to cover the entire country,” he said.
Under his watch, the ODM chief said, doctors will have better terms to enable them serve Kenyans full-time and reduce maternal deaths.
“We don’t want someone working for government and also having a private practice. You must choose to work full time,” he said.
