Siaya health department is rooting for a master plan that would address all diseases including the zoonotic ones.

According to Health Director Ken Orwenjo, some zoonotic diseases and COVID 19 that has been disastrous to countries should now form part of discussion and planning

“Let us think of having a master plan for the health docket. We know that the CIDP’s will go for five years and should we have a 10-20 years master plan, will be able to know how the department will thrive on quality healthcare in future,” said Orwenjo.
He added that “there are new or emerging diseases that require us to think broadly on ideas to support.


One critical thing is that we did not plan well for the pandemic and health emergencies.

“The COVID 19 that engulfed countries in the past was disastrous and it caused departments to collapse its projects and direct funds towards addressing it, “ said Oruenjo

In the recent approved budget for National government, five per cent was put on climate change management.

Oruenjo said all the pandemics that has happened globally emerges from zoonotic diseases so we need not to work in silos.

Orwenjo at the same time urged county health management team(CHMT) to relook the County Integrated Development Plan and tease it out especially clause that touches health docket.
“Let’s look into the recently signed CIDP and find out what its allocation for health.

“We should come up with suggestions on how we can review it,” said Orwenjo.
