Migration driving shortage of medics in Kenya: Aga Khan CEO

  • A 2015 report captured the shortage of medics in Kenya, whose doctor to patient ratio is 1:16,000.
  • Aga Khan University chief executive Shawn Bolouki explained on Monday that the shortage was partly driven by migration of medical workers to countries in the West.
  • Regarding technology, Mr Bolouki complained that vendors sell products that are difficult to operate and support services are offered after long periods of time, meaning medical staff are kept waiting.
  • Erik Gerritsen, Dutch Vice-minister of Health, Welfare and Sports, said patients must be empowered with “the right tools, information and knowledge” in order to take better care of their health.
