Through support from Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy (ICLD), The County Council of Västerbotten, together with one of its departments; Centre for Rural Medicine have made a fact-finding mission to Homa Bay County March 2018 to learn about the health care system as well as having a dialogue with Homa Bay County Government on potential areas of cooperation. The team from Västerbotten was hosted by the minister for health, professor Richard Otieno Muga who in the photo show the map of health care facilities in Homa Bay County. Together with Dr. Anne Ouma, a research and development advisor from Kenya and Sweden, I am a consultant and senior advisor to the parties in this collaboration.
