Next time you fall sick and need a drug for treatment just press *651# and find out if it is available or out of stock in the nearest health facility for your next course of action.
The Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (Kemsa) in a public private partnership has launched Kemsa e-mobile application to provide patients information about availability of drugs in public hospitals.
Dial *652# — That’s what it takes to potentially save a life in Kenya. I learned that from Dr. Cathy Mwangi, head of the CDC Foundation’s Mobile Post Exposure Prophylaxis (mPEP) initiative, launched in Kenya in 2013. The goal of the project is simple in words, but complex in action: to reduce the risks for health workers of contracting an infectious disease like HIV through an occupational exposure to the virus. But how, the question was asked, can caregivers provide the intensive follow-up required after a practitioner is exposed to HIV?
In order to achieve VISION 2030 objectives, the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) has adopted technology to enable the authority improve service delivery and increase access to healthcare.
The KEMSA emobile is a national project that aims to support the public health facilities to enable them communicate with KEMSA electronically in a seamless manner.
KEMSA e-Mobile LogoKenya is establishing itself as a leader in global mobile innovation. We have embraced a VISION 2030 plan with goals to create a globally competitive and prosperous nation with a high quality of life by 2030. To this end, I’m excited to announce today’s launch of a new E-Mobile platform that will advance the future of medical supply distribution in our country.
