The government also developed a National Social Protection Policy and prepared a Sessional Paper ready for debate by the National Assembly.

President Kenyatta at the same time urged NHIF to work with relevant arms of government to ensure that at least 25 million Kenyans have health insurance before the end of this year.

President Kenyatta said the government has commissioned a pilot Health Insurance Subsidy Programme covering 23,500 poor and vulnerable households in the country.

Under the pilot programme in-patient and out-patient services are being provided to orphans and vulnerable children.

Plans are on course to provide health insurance cover to 189,717 older persons and people with severe disabilities, he added.

Labour, Social Security and Services Cabinet Secretary Kazungu Kambi said the cash transfer scheme will hit the 1 million household mark soon.

He said the Jubilee Government is committed to ensure it delivers on all its pledges to Kenyans.

Others who addressed the conference were Cabinet Secretaries Jacob Kaimenyi (Education), Henry Rotich (National Treasury) and Hassan Wario (Sports).
