Makueni County has received medical equipment valued at nearly Sh100 million from an American charity, World Relief Services. The consignment includes ultrasound machines, Orthopantomamograms (OPGs), Ultra sound machines, dental units, cardiac monitors and Dialysis machines and associated accessories.
The availability of such kits will allow the county’s medical facilities to provide testing and diagnosis that was previously unavailable, deputy governor Adelina Mwau has said. Ms Mwau said the equipment will be distributed to all public hospitals in Makueni.
‘’Makueni Level Four and Makindu Level Four will be the top beneficiaries then the other equipment will be supplied to the eight sub county hospitals at Matiliku, Mutyambua, Kibwezi East, Sultan Hamud, Kilungu, Mbooni, Tawa and Kisau’’ said the deputy governor. Other 23 newly constructed dispensaries will also benefit from the consignment.
Mwau led a delegation to the United States in September 2015, the outcome of which has seen increased collaboration between Makueni County and international organizations.
