Abstract

The Kenya Health Policy, 2012 – 2030 gives directions to ensure significant improvement in overall status health in Kenya in line with the country’s long term development agenda, Vision 2030, the Constitution of Kenya 2010 and global commitments. It demonstrates the health sector’s commitment, under government stewardship, to ensuring that the Country attains the highest possible standards of health, in a manner responsive to the needs of the population. This Policy is designed to be comprehensive, balanced and coherent and focuses on the two key obligations of health: contribution to economic development as envisioned in the Vision 2030; and realization of fundamental human rights as enshrined in the Constitution of Kenya 2010. It focuses on ensuring equity, people centeredness and participatory approach, efficiency, multisectoral approach and social accountability in delivery of health care services.
