Increasing the resilience of national health systems is a global public good that Kenya encourages WHO member countries to achieve. At the 75th World Health Assembly on Monday, Health Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe stated that more effort must be made to strengthen health systems at the community level to achieve the Universal Health Coverage agenda envisioned by Sustainable Development Goal 3 on good health and well-being. 

“Kenya urges WHO and the Member States to redouble their efforts to strengthen the resilience of national health systems as a global public benefit and as a supporter of the pandemic,” she said. The topic of this year’s assembly is “Health for Peace, Peace for Health.” An examination of one’s health status.

His final request was that international aid organizations boost indigenous pharmaceutical and commodity production.

“This assumption is reinforced by the lessons learned during the COVID-19 outbreak, which showed vulnerabilities in global health care systems.” To meet their expectations and attain their goal, the global community must invest in health workers, specialities, and vital supplies.” At the conference, Kagwe delivered a speech.

The Global Fund, GAVI, and other major stakeholders, according to Kagwe, should acquire their products from local manufacturers. According to the COVID-19 challenge, there is an imbalance in health research and development in low- and middle-income nations.

Simultaneously, he stated, Kenya has made significant investments in primary health care by establishing nationwide primary care networks, providing essential medicines, establishing medicine therapeutic committees, training community health volunteers, and hiring a diverse range of PHC professionals.

The 75th World Health Assembly is being held in Geneva, Switzerland. This is the first World Health Assembly to be conducted in person since the discovery of COVID-19.
