Kabalborokwo Dispensary Opens Its Doors to Locals

Kabalborokwo dispensary on Friday, March 11, 2022, started its operations after being commissioned by acting Elgeyo Marakwet Health County Executive Committee Member (CECM) Abraham Barsosio.

The health facility is staffed and fully equipped with medicines and a maternal delivery bed.

Residents of Kabalborokwo have in the past traveled several kilometers to Iten County Referral Hospital (ICRH) or Kaptarakwa Health Centre to seek medical services which makes it more costly.

The opening of the dispensary will ease congestion at the ICRH and Kaptrakwa Health Centre which will receive more referral cases.

Kabalborokwo is projected to serve 1,200 households in the community.

Addressing the community during the commissioning, Barsosio commended the Kabalborokwo dispensary committee for steering the move to open the facility in the area as very professional.

He expressed confidence in them to manage the facility to be one of the best dispensaries in the County.

Health Chief Officer Mary Kipchumba called on all expectant women to make good use of the facility by visiting the clinic for checkups and delivery.

She assured residents that the County Government was on course to ensure health services are easily accessible and affordable for all.

In attendance was Kaptrakwa ward Member of County Assembly (MCA) Gilbert Kosgei, Deputy Director Planning Solomon Kandie, Keiyo South sub-county health team, Kenya Forest Services (KFS) representatives among others.
