The French Minister for Foreign Trade Economic Attractiveness and French Nationals Abroad, Hon. Mr. Olivier Becht, during his visit to the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Kenta on Wednesday reaffirmed France’s commitment to partner with Kenya to improve healthcare in the country.

During the visit, the PS expressed gratitude for the French Government’s support in improving healthcare in Kenya.
