NAIROBI Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 34 Baratas , June 29 (Xinhua) -- The Kenyan ministry of health will soon roll out new policy frameworks coupled with additional funding to boost response to emergency medical care in the light of rising man-made and natural disasters, officials said Thursday at a forum in Nairobi.
Cabinet Secretary for Health Cleopa Mailu said enactment of a robust policy and legislative framework will strengthen Kenya's ability to tackle health emergencies linked to road accidents, fires, epidemics and civil disturbances.
"Our health sector has prioritized investments in disaster response to avert deaths and economic losses," Mailu said, adding that Kenya has set precedence in the region in terms of emergency medical care.
Kenya has domesticated global instruments to revitalize disaster response through investments in capacity development Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 Baratas , research and modern equipment.
Mailu noted that investments in a resilient health care infrastructure has strengthened Kenya's capacity to respond to natural disasters, terrorism, fires and disease outbreaks.
"Emergency medical care is currently an integral component of the national health system. We are training additional personnel while acquiring custom-made ambulances to deliver emergency care," said Mailu.
Climatic shocks in recent years that include droughts and floods are believed to have overstretched Kenya's emergency healthcare infrastructure.
At the same time, Kenya has recorded a significant spike in human-induced disasters like collapse of buildings, fires Nike Air Pegasus Baratas , terrorism and road accidents.
Simon Kibias, Head of Emergency Medical Care and Disaster in the ministry of health, said that a paradigm shift is required to mitigate disasters that are responsible for premature death of Kenya's productive segment of the population.

XINING Onitsuka Tiger Baratas , May 29 (Xinhua) -- Most monks find inner peace through meditation -- Tashi Sangpo turns to nature.
The 46-year-old Khenpo, or Tibetan monastic preceptor, spends much of the year in the vast wilderness of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, with his heavy binoculars and cameras, looking for birds.
He has photographed nearly 400 bird species and he paints birds on traditional thankga scrolls.
He is passionate about making young people more aware of the environment, and is writing a picture book to teach children to protect wildlife.
According to Tashi Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Baratas , nature conservation is the practice of the Buddhist doctrine of mercy.
Tashi was born into a poor shepherd family at the foot of Nyanpo Yuzee, a snow-topped mountain on the eastern Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, 900 km from Xining, capital of Qinghai Province.
He was the second son of the family, which adhered to the Tibetan tradition of sending a second child to become a monk to offset living pressures.
At 13, Tashi was sent by his father to Baiyu Temple Asics GT Cool Express Baratas , 40 km from his home. Alone and homesick, he began watching birds in his spare time.
Birds reminded him of his childhood playing at a lake frequented by many animals. He says the lake looked like a beautiful blue butterfly, and his home was on its "wing."
In 1985, the temple was rebuilt and two artists came to decorate it with paintings. Tashi was one of 20 boy monks chosen to help grind and mix paints. When the work finished, he was rewarded with a brush and painting lessons.
He was keen, but at first the birds he painted looked very unrealistic.
Life was hard and his family could not afford to buy a camera Asics Gel Sight Baratas , so Tashi carried a tape recorder to help memorize features. Observing birds, he muttered into the machine the color of feathers, the size of wings and the way birds flew.
Back at the temple, he wrote the observations in notebooks. Gradually, his work began showing attention to detail.
Tashi began to win acclaim for his paintings at 19. Senior monks said he was perhaps "reincarnated from a bird." Some nicknamed him "Bird Lama."
Locals began to bring injured birds for Tashi to treat.
WILD AT HEART
At 27, Tashi graduated from Baiyu Temple and became a young Khenpo. His parents urged him to keep studying at the temple Asics Gel Scram 3 Baratas , but he chose to live in the wilderness.
Pursuing new species, he has crossed mountains and rivers, braved freezing cold and extreme weather. He has even risked attack by wolves.
Funded by his sister and friends, Tashi has more camera equipment to record more species, including some that have seldom been seen.
In 2005, he discovered a pair of sixu Asics Gel Saga Baratas , or Tibetan bunting, whose range is usually limited to the plateau. Listed as endangered, the bird has been observed only ten times since the 1990s.
Tashi began painting the sixu, while working with non-governmental wildlife groups to learn more about the species.
His research was published in foreign zoological journals, drawing global attention to wildlife on the "Roof of the World."
He secured funds from Chinese and foreign scientific organizations to create a nature reserve and compensate shepherds who agreed to stop grazing during the bird's breeding season.
Tashi worries about threats to bird populations on the plateau.
Local people traditionally carry out "sky burials," a funeral practice in which a corpse is placed on a mountaintop to decompose and be eaten by vultures.
