What are healthcare services like in Kenya?

"Kenya has a public healthcare system that provides basic medical services to its citizens. The public healthcare system is largely funded by the government and is supplemented by private healthcare providers. Healthcare services in Kenya are generally of a good quality, with a range of medical professionals available to provide care. However, access to healthcare is limited in rural areas, and the cost of private healthcare can be prohibitively expensive for many Kenyans. In addition, there is a shortage of medical supplies and equipment in some areas, which can lead to delays in treatment," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Kenya.
