KMTC Student Represents the College at the 76th World Health Assembly

Ms. Lukrasia Robai, famously known as ‘The Dancing Nurse’, who is a student at Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC), was among participants at the World Health Organization (WHO) conference in Geneva, representing the College and the country on the world stage.

As a special guest at the WHO’s ‘Walk the Talk Health for all’ event held in May 21, 2023 Lukrasia was actively involved in engaging participants through physical activities, particularly dancing, and encouraging active participation in the seven-day World Health Assembly. The ‘Walk the Talk, Health for All’ initiative is aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle, raise awareness about Universal Health Coverage, and celebrate the significance of partnerships.

Ms. Robai expressed her excitement at the opportunity provided by the world’s leading health organization, which covered all her expenses.

“I could not believe it when I received the invitation to engage participants at the WHO event in Geneva. It was an incredible experience to be a part of this Assembly where global health issues were discussed, along with how leaders can bring about positive change in the healthcare sector through modern technology,” Ms. Robai narrated enthusiastically.

The nursing student gained recognition after a video of her dancing for a pediatric patient at Kitale Level Four Hospital went viral on social media.

She further emphasized that her innovative use of talent aims to bring smiles and make a difference in the lives of her patients and the community as a whole. Ms. Robai advised fellow students to broaden their perspective of the world, embrace accountability, and harness their creativity and talents to promote community health.

This extraordinary opportunity extended by the highest health body in the world highlights Ms. Robai’s dedication to using her talent for the betterment of healthcare. The KMTC Kitale student’s presence at the WHO conference underscores the impact of individual innovation and the potential for positive change in healthcare promotion.

As Ms. Robai continues her journey as ‘The Dancing Nurse’, her experience and insights gained from the WHO conference will undoubtedly inspire others in the medical field and beyond to explore innovative approaches to healthcare delivery and holistic patient care.
