The RCCs coordinate the Association’s activities in its four regions - Eastern/North Eastern, Central/Nairobi/South East & Coast, Western/North Rift, and Nyanza/South Rift. The chairmen of the RCCs represent their regions in EXCO. The four geographical regions also facilitate planning, regional advocacy, communication and allocation of resources.
The chairpersons of the four regions are also members of EXCO together with CHAK’s national officials, namely, the chairman, vice-chairman, treasurer and vice-treasurer. The General Secretary serves as the Secretary and represents the Secretariat.
The RCCs coordinate networking and participation in health sector planning at regional level in addition to providing a communication link between the Secretariat and MHUs. They also facilitate identification of advocacy issues and provide feedback to the Secretariat. Further, RCCs assist the secretariat in monitoring health services projects within their regions and in dissemination of information.
Following the creation of 47 county governments with scope of mandate that includes health services provision, planning, supervision and decision making in resource allocation, CHAK proposes to establish and strengthen County Engagement Structures (CES) to support RCCs in mobilization, coordination and advocacy for MHUs engagement at county level. The county engagement structures shall be defined in a County Engagement Strategy to be articulated by CHAK. These will take into consideration the strength of membership presence at the County including Medical Training Colleges.
