Women who deliver in public hospitals to get incentives: Ojaamong

Women who will observe guidelines issued by the department of Health and later deliver in public hospitals will be given incentives, according to Busia governor Sospeter Ojaamong.

Addressing the press before flagging off three vehicles purchased by funds from World Bank through the Transforming Health Systems (THS) programme, the governor said his government wants to encourage mothers to attend antenatal clinics and deliver in public hospitals.

“We have already budgeted for this programme that will see mothers who deliver in public health institutions receive an assortment of goods to start life with new-born,” he said, telling Community Health Volunteers to do the same to have more mothers attend clinics.

The governor thanked the World Bank for the project which has helped in supporting universal health coverage, urging the World Bank to extend it owing to the Covid-19 pandemic

Chief Officer, Medical Services, Dr. Isaac Omeri said the three vehicles were purchased at a total cost of Sh. 20m, adding that the fourth vehicle flagged off by the Governor was donated by the Ministry of Health to help in Covid-19 fight.
