One of Italy's leading health groups will work with Kenya to improve the country's health system, which has been tried like so many others by the pandemic crisis, and to create the most important health centre for the treatment of mental illnesses.
Previous visits to Italy by Health Minister Mutahi Kagwe, which he reported to Malindikenya. net last November during his meeting with the Italian Ambassador to Kenya Alberto Pieri, have enabled the Kenyan Government to establish good relations with the San Donato Group, and in recent days Kagwe and President Uhuru Kenyatta have met in Nairobi a team composed, among others, of the President of Gsd Healthcare Middle East and Vice President of the San Donato Group Kamel Ghribi and Professors Francesco Galli, Gianvito Martino and Massimo Tivegna.
The Minister, speaking at the Kenyatta University Teaching, Referral & Research Hospital (KUTRRH) on the sidelines of the meeting with the Italian group and recalling the excellent relations between the two nations, said that the pandemic has brought to light global disparities in health systems and exposed the fragility of public health systems even in the most powerful nations, confirming that the Kenyan government is investing in regional and national health systems that will allow easy and fast access to quality care at the local level.
The San Donato Group, the ministry explained in a statement released on its social pages, "is visiting Kenya for the first time as part of a series of meetings aimed at exploring areas of collaboration with the Kenyan government and finding ways in which we can increase our capacity to respond to the challenges of mental health service delivery".
Mr Kagwe added that he looks forward to cooperation with the Italian group, described as 'pioneers in the field of health research', which could span several areas, both in the public and private sectors, with a focus on exchange programmes involving Italian and Kenyan doctors and in the areas of oncology, paediatrics and mental health.
This visit represents the first step in the development of a joint Italian-Kenyan programme, in the field of health care, aimed at implementing the local hospital network and guaranteeing good and sustainable care for the population.
