MEMORANDUM TO THE SENATE AD-HOC COMMITTEE ON COVID-19
Wednesday, 08 April 2020
This joint memorandum is submitted in line with the call by the ad-hoc committee on COVID-19 of the Senate of Kenya. It speaks to specific issues as summarized in the next section and detailed thereafter.
Summary of recommendations
- National and County governments should urgently formulate and approve supplementary budgets to releases more resources to the critical health functions to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. These reallocations should consider the multisectoral nature of the response to the crisis. However, these adjustments of the budget should not move resources from programs that are meant to provide services to the poor and vulnerable groups in the country.
