Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) has received calls for urgent structural and institutional reforms.
The new reforms in the institution have been backed up by the council of governors as they request KEMSA to be accountable.
A statement issued by CoG Chairman Martin Wambora said that this will ensure that the institution effectively serves Counties in terms of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical product procurement and supply.
According to the Council, the centralized procurement and distribution system for health products and technologies should be restructured to be fully aligned with devolution.
Meanwhile, the council says it will work with the National Government to help county governments find Alternative Health Providers to ensure a continuous supply of high-quality health products to county health facilities.
