COUNTY, EMGWEN MP UNITE TO OFFER FREE MEDICAL CAMP
The County Department of Health and Sanitation in collaboration with Emgwen Member of Parliament will hold a one week free medical camp across the Constituency.
Speaking while receiving a consignment of drugs from KEMSA at Kilibwoni Health Center, Emgwen Member of Parliament Hon Josses Lelmengit said the event is meant to help the locals with free medication and assessment.
He noted that Emgwen community will benefit from the free medical camps where they will access free general medical check-ups, medication reviews, counselling for family planning, cervical & prostate cancer screening, dental care, and eye assessment.
The event is being held at an opportune time as Nurses celebrate the International Nurses Week where Nurses from Nandi County have also organized a series of events across the county to offer free medical services to the residents to mark the event.
The CEC Member for Health and Sanitation Ruth Koech said that the event will also included health education (family planning, nutrition, diet, and public health) sessions and the distribution of essential medications including contraceptive methods.
“One of the most rewarding part is to see the impact we are having on people’s lives,” she added.
The free medical camps facilitated by Emgwen Constituency Office aim to extend health services and bring them closer to their communities. It offers a platform for health practitioners to give back to the community by putting their skills into practice. The camps also help community members and medical staff interact freely from the hospital setting.
