‘First ladies’ partner to fight cancer in 12 counties

The rate at which cancer is spreading is likely to be reduced courtesy of the programmes launched by the non-governmental organizations in Kenya in partnership with counties’ first ladies.

Africa Cancer Foundation (ACF), and Roche East Africa intend to work on cancer prevention, treatment and management from 2019 to 2022 in 12 preselected counties, focusing on capacity building, resource mobilization and technical assistance on cancer, in the counties.

The 12 counties identified are Kisumu, Isiolo, Nyeri, Machakos, Laikipia, Bungoma, Taita Taveta, Meru, Murang’a, Kakamega, Nakuru and Nairobi.

The forum for the county first ladies from the 12 counties will be working out the modalities of working with National and County governments, as well as all key stakeholders to take the fight against reproductive health cancers to the next level.

With all these measures put in place, the war against cancer will be successful according to Dorothy Nyong’o, Chair of Programmes of the County First Ladies Association.

  1. In this grand scheme of things you get an A+ for hard work. Where exactly you actually lost us was first on your specifics. As they say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be more correct at this point. Having said that, allow me tell you what did do the job. The text is extremely persuasive which is most likely why I am making the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, whilst I can certainly notice the leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really convinced of just how you appear to unite the details which inturn produce the actual conclusion. For now I will yield to your position but hope in the foreseeable future you link your dots better.
