Residents of Kitui Ukambani region can now breathe a sigh of relief following the launch of the Cancer Center at county’s Referral Hospital.

The Ksh 20 million project was constructed by the Bristol Myers Squibb foundation and implemented by Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB), Malombe’s administration spending a nil coin on the greatest achievement.

The nil expenditure county’s project, Phangisile Mtshali was commissioned by Kisumu first lady Dorothy Nyong’o.

CMMB provided training to healthcare workers, equipped the unit, and offering sensitization on cancer screening services.

The joint project was implemented in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute of Kenya as a technical partner through the accreditation processes, CMMB as the implementing agency and the Malombe’s government as the recipient of the support.

“We are fortunate to have a great partnership with Bristol Meyers Squibb Foundation which is saving women’s lives,” said Dr. James Kisia, CMMB Kenya, country director.

Redemptor Mutembei, a cancer survivor in Kitui, asked residents to commit themselves and go for cancer testing and screening and encouraged those living with the disease never to give up, but faithfully continue with their medication with strict adherence to the doctor’s guidelines to sustain their lives longer.
