SESSIONAL PAPER NO. 7 OF 2012 ON THE POLICY ON UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE COVERAGE IN KENYA

Authors

Republic of Kenya Ministry of Health

Abstract

Financing healthcare delivery in the country continues to remain an unsurmountable challenge to the economy and a hindrance to equal access to healthcare services of high standards. Several pioneering efforts to address this challenge characterize the post-independence history of Kenya. In 1965, the then Government took a ground breaking step on the continent in financing health care delivery through the introduction of a mandatory Health Insurance for all employed persons earning more than Kshs 1,000 per month.
