Cabinet secretary of health Susan Nakhumicha, the cabinet secretary for health, has stated that the government is actively working to address human resource issues in the health sector and end the ongoing doctor strike.

Speaking during the World TB Day celebrations at Kimorori grounds in Murang’a, the CS said the government is working tirelessly to resolve the issues raised by doctors and bring the strike to an end.

“The government is working to find solutions to resolve the human resource crises in the health sector to ensure the issue of strikes is resolved once and for all.” She said.

She reassured the doctors and other medical practitioners that the government and all stakeholders are working to address the issues raised by doctors saying that so far, they have made significant progress.

The approach is centered on resolving outstanding issues to restore normalcy in the sector, as reassured by the speaker.

The Ministry of Health has started releasing letters to clinical officers in medicine to address doctor-related issues, with other practitioners expected to receive similar letters soon.

“I want to resolve this matter in a way that the next health CS will not have to deal with these issues of strikes as doctors will no longer have reasons to strike.” She stated.

Lastly, she commended doctors who remain employed and urged the public to remain patient while the government resolves this issue.

Furthermore, Kangema Member of Parliament Peter Kihungi and his Nyeri counterpart Duncan Mathenge, pleaded with the doctors to resume work as the government has already started resolving their issues so that Kenyans do not suffer unnecessarily from the strike.
