Kajiado County Governor Joseph ole Lenku has said the county government will collaborate with Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) in an effort to enhance healthcare education and service delivery.

Speaking during a meeting at the County Headquarters, Lenku said that to achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in Kajiado County, there is a need to invest more in community health services and top-level primary health care facilities.

“The County Government has set aside land for the construction of a medical school adjacent to the County Referral Hospital,” he noted.

Additionally, the Governor noted that he had signed a memorandum of understanding with the institution.

“Construction of the college in 50 acres land in Kajiado will be a second of its kind after the Loitokitok based campus,” he underscored.

Lenku further revealed that KMTC is realigning courses to have such programs as nursing care, clinical medicine and medical engineering that will increase training opportunities in tune with the universal healthcare coverage.

He also highlighted that the KMTC Loitokitok campus will also be expanded to accommodate more courses that will ultimately see the students absorbed by the hospitals in their localities for the benefit of the people.

Also in attendance were KMTC Board Chairperson Joseph Cheruiyot and the CEO Dr.Kelly Oluoch, KMTC Academic Registrar Ronald Wasike , Principal Nairobi Campus Joseph Wahome , Nairobi KMTC Finance Kelvin Komu and Principle Loitokitok KMTC campus Nicholas Ruto.
