Nurses Cry Foul Over Shortage Of Birth Attendants Featured

The rollout of free maternal care across the country has caused a strain on service delivery at government hospitals with the National Nurses Association of Kenya now raising the red flag about shortage of skilled birth attendants. The association's chairperson Jeremiah Maina says currently there are just about 39 thousand licensed nurses against a population of over 40 million Kenyans. The association is now urging the government to empower counties to employ more nurses to offer free maternal health services. Maina says devolving health services will not succeed without engaging more nurses otherwise the delivery of quality services will remain a mirage.
