Dear Friends

Work is going well at the Dentcare Kenya dental clinics-Mihango/Embakasi and Kayole-Matopeni , and at the Mwingi Dental Hospital.  In addition, my postgraduate schooling is interesting and indeed a new experience in learning healthcare systems. I have learned a number of things on healthcare laws and the making of health policies, financial accounting and management in the healthcare sector as a well as quantitative analysis and statistics for healthcare management. The coursework is really interesting-we even did a case study of the Obamacare in comparison with our own NHIF/Free Maternity care/Free under 5years healthcare. At the end of the taught classes we are meant to submit a research thesis on our areas of interest in the healthcare sector. 

This is one of a kind program in East Africa and probably the whole of Africa.  So far only 2 intakes have been done, I am in the 2nd lot. Healthcare in Kenya as per the 2010 constitution was devolved/decentralized to the county governments and so far the system is experiencing a myriad of teething problems. It’s in the wake of this that I have seen the opportunity to study healthcare management with the hope that when we have new leaders in the county governments, I can be part of the reformists in the healthcare sector. 

The going is tough but the tough have to keep going.  I continue working with volunteers to offer dental screenings to the poor.  It is a rewarding experience.  Thank you for your support in this effort.

 

With warm appreciation,
