KMET and Pharm Access are in a 3-day process of shooting a 15-minute documentary to show how the two partners are helping to build functioning health systems by increasing quality in health care as well as demand for health care.
The film crew lead by Johan Kortenray is from the Academic Medical Center from the University of Amsterdam and will be working from 14th-16th of August.
According to Prof. Joep Lange, founder member and chairperson of the advisory board of Pharm Access, the documentary will be screened in an annual event christened Anatomical Lessons that features a homily by researchers, scholars and scientists at the University of Amsterdam.
Prof. Joep is a special guest in the event and has been requested to present their work through a film about its partners and projects.
“KMET has done a lot in promoting access to quality healthcare and we would like to capture the work of the Huduma Poa health network, link it with MCF, Safe Care programs and the Bima Poa health plan,” said the professor who accompanied the film crew to Dophil Medical centre in Siaya.
The team conducted a pre-visit to Dophil Nursing and Maternity Home in Siaya, one of the hospitals that has benefited from the KMET/Pharm Access initiative to improve quality, safety and income associated with its health programs.
Dophil and other seven hospitals in Siaya and East Kisumu are also set to benefit from increased healthcare demand from the new KMET Bima Poa health insurance plan that is currently on pilot phase.
