A report by Nairobi County Assembly’s Health Services committee has revealed at least 7,900 health facilities in Nairobi are operating illegally.

The report tabled before the House on Wednesday, revealed that out of the 9,043 health facilities across the county, only 1,079 were registered and licensed to operate.

The report resulted from concerns raised by MCAs Francis Ngesa and Joseph Wambugu, who were disturbed by the increase in the number of illegal health facilities in the city.

The Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board has however listed down legitimate clinics that the public can seek services from.
