Referrals For Specialized Treatment And Legal Redress

The health needs that are diagnosed critically; we have always referred them to a more specialized medical Centre. In Kenya we have Kenyatta national hospital- a government hospital that requires partial payment. Nairobi hospital is private and requires full payment. Eldoret Teaching and Referrals hospital requires partial payment. Within the Centre, we have the Bungoma general hospital about 200 meters away, we do send their out-patients; requires cost sharing.

From 2016 MATESOF has filed 48 cases and 36 have been awarded compensation worth Ksh.120 million. The Government is yet to pay, and it does it discriminatively. The Late Hon. Matiba was awarded 900 million, and 400 million paid immediately.
