Nakuru County Deputy Governor, H.E. David Kones, hosted a team from the Kenya Health Professions Oversight Authority (KHPOA) in a consultative meeting at his office. The KHPOA delegation, led by Henry Nyakundi, the Acting Director in charge of Inspection, Registration, and Compliance Department, engaged in discussions on enhancing collaboration between the county and the authority to improve health services and regulate the health sector.
Among the key points discussed was the proposal to establish a county health inspectorate, aimed at conducting joint inspections with the state department and health inspectors. This collaborative approach seeks to strengthen oversight mechanisms, ensuring adherence to health standards and regulations.
Deputy Governor Kones expressed the county’s full support for the program, emphasizing the importance of incorporating stringent regulations into KHPOA policy guidelines. This integration is crucial to maintaining professionalism and high standards within the health sector.
Accompanying the Deputy Governor were Chief Officers Martin Kagai (Office of the Governor) and Charles Koech (Public Service and Devolution), along with Dominic Mburu, the County Health Administrative Officer. The collaborative efforts between Nakuru County and KHPOA underscore a commitment to fostering a robust healthcare system that prioritizes quality, compliance, and the overall well-being of the residents.
