Vision: A prosperous and globally competitive county free from preventable diseases.

Mission: To promote the provision of sustainable, accessible, quality and equitable health care that is evidence based, technology driven and client centered to all the people of Kajiado County.

Health is wealth hence need to ensure health facilities are available and within reach.

Distribution of health facilities is uneven as most are within the urban centers. Focus on construction of health facilities in the rural areas to be a priority.

Average distance to the nearest health center especially for the rural areas

Doctor population ratio – 1:26000. This ratio is not good for the County hence the need for National Government to provide more doctors to the County as the County Government provides incentives for investors in the health sector.

Nurse population ratio is 1: 1068. The current scenario is untenable and calls for urgent measures to provide the support needed.
