Mombasa County: To enhance use of machine learning and technology in collecting date, we issued 80 desktop computers and 70 tablets across the coastal counties of Mombasa, Kilifi, Kwale and Taita Taveta Count.
The equipment will assist in recording of health data across the facilities in the County in the HIV Prevention of mother to child transmission program. This is in support of the Rapid response initiative by the Ministry of health in ensuring that we end AIDS in children by 2027.
The computers will be used to update records and ensure that all pregnant mothers who are living with HIV are offered quality health services to eliminate mother to child transmission of HIV.
While issuing the computers at Mombasa County, Dr. Philip Masaulo, the USAID Stawisha Pwani Deputy Chief of Party, said that the equipment will assist the healthcare officers to upload data and make informed decisions in ending HIV in the County.
The equipment was received by a team from the Mombasa County led by the County’s Chief Officer Public Health and Disease Prevention Abdalla Daleno. He praised the initiative and said the equipment will improve the health services and outcomes in the county.
This initiative is also aimed at improving the quality of service and ensure efficiency for sustainability of health services within the county as they embrace the Kenya electronic medical records, which refers to patient-related information and includes patient identification information and clinic attendance or encounter information.
