EACC LAUNCHES SYSTEM REVIEW OF HEALTH MINISTRY

20th March, 2017: The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has launched a review of the systems, policies, procedures and practices in the pricing of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical supplies in the public health sector in Kenya. The launch, at the Kenya School of Curriculum Development (KICD), comes in the wake of a report indicating that such supplies are procured above fair, equitable and competitive cost effective prices, leading to significant leakage of funds.

Citing the report -- Sealing Corruption in Kenyas Health Procurement system -- EACC Deputy CEO Michael Mubea, who officially launched the review, urged the concerned ministries to strengthen their systems to minimize corruption.

The report was prepared by the Society for International Development (SID), Transparency International and Kenya Ethical and Legal Issues Network. Health Cabinet Secretary Dr. Cleopa Mailu welcomed the audit as timely, bearing in mind the many corruption loopholes cited in the recent past in the ministry.

The exercise aims to identify any systemic loopholes or weaknesses that may lead to inefficiencies and malpractices in the pricing of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical supplies both at the acquisition and dispensing stages. EACCs secretariat will audit the systems and give its recommendations.

It will target the Ministry of Health headquarters, selected national referral hospitals, county governments departments of health, selected county referral hospitals and health facilities, and various stakeholders such as the National Treasury, the Public Procurement Regulatory Authority, the Pharmacy and Poisons Board, and the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority.
