Photo: Kenya Launches Ambulance Service For Security Forces


Kenya has launched its first national air ambulance service
to evacuate security forces wounded in battle. President Uhuru Kenyatta said
the service was vital to ensure they received swift treatment.

The initiative is likely to boost the morale of security
personnel facing multiple threats, a BBC reporter says.
Some soldiers and policemen have bled to death or have died
of dehydration in remote areas of Kenya because of long delays in getting them
to hospital. The government has now reached a deal with the Red Cross and
private firm AMREF Flying Doctors to despatch helicopters and vehicles as soon
as distress calls are received.
The new evacuation service will also be offered to civil
servants, especially those who work in the security field in rural areas with
few medical facilities.
