A new maternity wing has officially opened its doors at Chepkumia Health Center in Chepkumia Ward, Nandi County.

The Governor noted that the new facility at Chepkumia Health Center is a big reprieve to hundreds of women and children in Chepkumia and beyond.

He, however, said that there is still more to be done to expand access to health services, and promote utilization of antenatal care, deliveries by skilled attendants, and post-natal care for communities living in remote areas.

Nandi County Executive Committee Member for Health and Sanitation Ruth Koech observed that the free maternal and neonatal services policy by the government and the Linda Mama initiative have all worked towards increasing skilled birth attendance and positive health outcomes for mothers and babies.

“I wish to encourage mothers in Nandi County to enroll in large numbers in the Linda Mama Initiative,” she said.

Adding that: “We want to be sure that all mothers are accessing quality skilled birth attendance.”

The County Government of Nandi has invested in other maternity facilities within the county including putting up new wards as well as the construction of new maternity wings.
