“The 27 hospitals were found to be involved in fraudulent activities, resulting in a loss of Sh. 171m. Extrapolating this to the total population of 8,886 hospitals, it is estimated that approximately 3,440 might have been engaged in fraudulent activities, potentially exceeding Sh. 20 billion in losses from about 40 per cent fraudulent hospitals,” said Health Cabinet Secretary Susan  Nakhumicha.
