“AFYA YA DHIKI.”
My story will basically highlight what some communities are going through in Kinango constituency, Kwale County pertaining access to health care facilities.
Distribution of health facilities versus population of Kinango ;Kibandaongo and Doti villages is not proportional, resulting into untold health complication in the area.
Pregnant women in labor are forced to deliver under care of unqualified mid-wives, a situation that is exposing them and the new born to health complication or even death. The sick are forced to commute a distance of 10 KM to access medication from health centers that lacks adequate medication manpower and facilities, forcing the sick to be referred to distanced and well furnished health facilities in neighboring counties i.e Mombasa and Kilifi.
