The National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) has appointed Dr. Peter Kamunyo Gathege as its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with effect from 14th April 2020.
Dr. Kamunyo is a healthcare executive with a Master of Science degree in Public Health, Bachelor of Medicine & Surgery, and Postgraduate diploma in Sexually Transmitted Infections and HIV management.
He takes over from Nicodemus Odongo, who has been performing the role in an acting capacity since 2018 after his predecessor, Geoffrey Mwangi, was arrested amid graft investigations when the Fund was reported to have lost KSh93 million.
Mr. Odongo will, therefore, continue in his role as the director for strategy, planning, and marketing at the Fund.
Before his appointment, Dr. Kamunyo previously served as CEO of MedSource Group Limited, and Tai Medical Centres.
