Deputy President William Ruto has said the fight against cancer in Kenya is on course.
He said the first step to battling the killer disease started in 2014 with the launch of diagnosis equipment in county health facilities, and later followed by NHIF cover for cancer patients.
“Kenyans needs to regularly use the equipment to do screening. That way, we would be able to apply the right strategies to impede its further growth,” he said today in Tharaka Nithi County during the burial of Jeniffer Cianjagi, mother to Governor Muthomi Njuki
He noted that the government would continue pushing for policies that would cost of food, manage cost of medical care and ensure youths get jobs.
