The Chinese Government Is Going To Build A Sh8.3 Billion Disease Research Centre In Kenya

Kenya has agreed to host a regional disease research centre following requests by the African Union and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The Cabinet announced this on Thursday, noting the centre will position Kenya as a regional and continental hub in medical research and disease control.

It will also give the country a head start in combating medical issues such as the coronavirus pandemic.

As part of its support for establishment of the centre, the Chinese government has offered to put up a 21-storey office building at an estimated cost of Sh8.3 billion.

Once complete, it will provide job opportunities for Kenyans in the technical, administrative and support functions.
