Kenya's healthcare should not follow the Eva Peron model

What you need to know:

  • Unfortunately, Eva Peron died in 1952, and thus the decline of the Foundation began. By 1955 it was no more.
  • It does not end there. The Ministry of Health was among the ministries that benefited from a substantial percentage of the budget in the 2015-2016 financial year.
  • Let these causes complement what the government of the day is doing, rather than divert state resources to support their initiatives.

The Beyond Zero Campaign initiative, started by the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta, has had considerable success in mobilising resources aimed at improving maternal health.
