Abstract

This report summarises the results of the 2013 Kenya Household Health Expenditure and Utilisation Survey (2013 KHHUES), a national and county representative sample survey. The survey explored the health-seeking behaviour, use of healthcare services, out-of-pocket health spending, and health insurance coverage of Kenyan households. The Kenya Ministry of Health (MoH), with support from the USAID-funded Health Policy Project and in conjunction with the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS), conducted the 2013 KHHUES to provide critical evidence to inform the development of the new health financing strategy. Survey findings will also inform policy decisions related to the future universal health coverage and the National Hospital Insurance Fund. The 2013 KHHUES also provides information that supports the wider national health accounts estimation process.
