Pediatricians from Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) are attending a three-day annual scientific conference (2018) in Mombasa, Kenya, organized by Kenya Paediatric Association.

The team is led by MTRH Deputy CEO (Clinical Services), Dr. Francis Ogaro, who is also a Chief Medical Specialist (Pulmonologist).

Dr. Ogaro delivered a presentation titled: Tuberculosis among children, aligning our strategies towards Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

He observed that children diagnosed with TB are from poor, vulnerable and marginalized communities and that overtime it has been proven that there is a co-relation between TB and malnutrition.

The DCEO said that there is need for concerted efforts right from Government, Private Sector, CBOs and all other players to help eradicate poverty in all its forms everywhere, end hunger, achieve food security as well as improving on nutrition.

“We must live up to SDG 3 which requires us to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.”

Dr. Ogaro stated that indoor air pollution is a major risk factor for TB.

He went on to say that the ultimate goal for TB elimination requires that the appropriate interventions are implemented everywhere and the underlying drivers including SDGs are not only addressed but sustainably addressed.

Pediatricians, he said, will play a critical role towards the realization of Universal Healthcare Coverage in their counties.        

Other Pediatricians’ attending the conference are; Dr. Philip Cheptinga, Dr. Polycarp Mandi, Dr. Eric Ngetich, Dr. Edith Apondi and Dr. Ahoya Ademi. The Registrars attending the conference include; Dr. Cecilia Kiilu, Dr. Wamboi, Dr. Gachemi, Dr. Joy Mugoya and Dr. Yaumbile.
