National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF)
This is a first edition of the NHIF accreditation manual for Kenyan Hospitals. The development of this manual was a collaborative effort of representatives from all health sectors, including the Ministry of Health, University of Nairobi Medical School, the Kenya Medical Association, and the private Hospitals. The manual is specific to Kenya, but the contents therein have been compared to international standards and found to meet basic intent of most international standards that apply to Kenyan laws, Public Health Act, and the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) regulations, vision and mission. It is expected that this manual will be a catalyst for change and improvement in both the culture and practice of health care in all NHIF accredited hospitals.
