A strike by Kenyan nurses points to the country's failure to manage the devolution of responsibility for health care from national to county governments.
Kenya's doctors embarked on a strike for a 100 days to push the government to implement a collective bargaining agreement signed in June 2013.
The striking doctors in Kenya have vowed not to resume work until the government meets their demands.
Kenya faces a rising number of major incidents and disasters. Any delays in treating patients could result in increased morbidity and mortality rates.
There were more protests in Britain last year than at any time since the 1970s.
