Health CS SICILY KARIUKI now reveals what may be driving Kenyan doctors in Cuba to commit suicide-This is bad

Wednesday April 3, 2019-Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki has finally revealed the findings of investigations on Kenyan doctors' welfare in Cuba.

Addressing the media at Afya House, CS Kariuki stated that a team of experts sent to assess the living conditions and general welfare of the Kenyan doctors had found that the cost of living in Cuba was very high.

To mitigate the situation, the CS announced that the Ministry of Health has enhanced the allowance of the Kenyan doctors studying in Cuba to address the challenges posed by the high cost of living.

"It was noted that the students have now commenced the medical training after completing the language training and have been posted to various clinics across Havana for their post-graduate training.”

"The team, however, observed that the cost of living in Cuba was relatively high and that the Kenyan Embassy in Havana was in constant communication with the students regarding their welfare. Kenyan doctors there will get more stipends from now," she stated.

The investigation into the Kenyan doctors’ welfare in Cuba was triggered following the death of one doctor who committed suicide as a result of frustrations in Cuba.
