As a follow up to this, the Council of Governors hosted representatives from the Kenya Health Professionals, County Public Service Board and Ministry of Health to a consultative meeting to discuss pending issues in the memorandum and see how counties are doing on its implementation. The meeting agreed that a scheme of service is crucial for every health employee working both in the County or National Government thus every association or society will be required to have one. Both parties issue guidelines and circulars from time to time with regards to HR matters outlined in the memorandum. Both the County and the National Government, will have to incur costs in bringing all stakeholders on Board on the development of a scheme of service.
Moving forward, a technical committee comprising representatives from all the stakeholders present will be formed and immediately begin to look through the detailed content of the Memorandum. All parties agreed to work together to ensure that health care is improved in the counties and that the MoU is implemented across the country.
