- Medical Services minister Anyang' Nyong'o is calling on Kenyans to embrace information technology in the provision and access to health services. Nyong'o said his ministry is committed to implement the goals of vision 2030 which seek to improve the health outcomes and indicators of Kenyans by shifting focus from curative to preventive, and eventually promotive health care. He was speaking yesterday in Nairobi while launching a two-day workshop on e-health. The conference seeks to discuss ways of integrating m-health into e-health. In a speech read on his behalf by PS Mary Ngari, Nyong'o reiterated the importance of e-health to workers and patients alike.
