Africa: Hospital Debt, Detention and Dignity in Health
[allAfrica] On December 22, 2022, Sakaja Arthur Johnson, the Governor of Nairobi County, Kenya’s capital, partnered with Cooperative Bank to release patients who had been detained in hospitals due to accrued medical bills. We congratulate Governor Sakaja for such a humanitarian gesture. However, prior to this public good, the rights of these patients were infringed upon. This is unacceptable.
