Abstract

The Government of Kenya is committed to the improvement of the health and welfare of its citizens. Over the years, the government has taken important steps towards this goal, emphasizing that the provision of health services should meet the basic needs of the population and be geared towards providing health services within easy reach of Kenyans. It has also placed considerable emphasis on preventive, promotive and rehabilitative health services without ignoring curative services. Among the actions taken—the development of the Kenya Health Policy Framework (KHPF 1994-2010), the launch of Vision 2030, and the enactment of a new constitution in 2010— have greatly influenced the health status of Kenyans and the structure in which health services are provided. In particular, the new constitution creates a devolved system of governance with 47 counties, each of which is responsible for providing and delivering health care services to its citizens.
