@LeonLidigu Just thimking. We live in an East African region where Kenya is slightly ahead of our neighbors on the medical field. If private entities really invested in healthcare we could become a health tourism hub and seek to pass on the benefits to the domestic population.

Among cancers, lung is the deadliest. If a tumor is discovered early on, the first option is almost always surgery. But as @angRchen reports, a new surgical program for early stage patients aims to remove less of the lung than what has been standard. https://t.co/lsdy5tEDmb

To address high food prices we must begin with the farmer. Providing affordable farm inputs through a subsidy programme is a strategic intervention that will put the country on the right path. Flagged off a consignment of 426,000 bags of DAP fertilizer for farmers across Kenya.
