Over 7,000 Clinics Operating Illegally In Nairobi! Committee Reports

A report has revealed that at least 7,900 health facilities in Nairobi County are not registered or licensed and are therefore operating illegally.

The report by the Nairobi County Assembly’s Health Services committee, tabled before the House on yesterday, revealed that out of the 9,043 health facilities across the county, only 1,079 were registered and licensed to operate.

This means that a whopping 7,964 health facilities are in business illegally and that most Nairobi residents, especially those in informal settlements, could be getting health services from ‘quacks’.

The report resulted from concerns raised by MCAs Francis Ngesa and Joseph Wambugu, who said they were perturbed by the increase in the number of illegal health facilities in the city.

The MCAs’ concerns followed the death of a Dandora activist Caroline Mwatha which police said was because of a botched abortion at New Njiru Clinic in Dandora Ward.
