This Kenya Essential Medical supplies List (KEMSL) is published for the first time in conjunction with the fifth edition of the Kenya Essential Medicines List (KEML). Together, they comprise critical tools in supporting the provision of the Kenya Essential Package for Health (KEPH2), which is a core strategy for reversing the declining trends in the country’s health status. Like the KEML, the KEMSL is an investment guide - a guide for the investment of healthcare funds in financing the most appropriate medical supplies to achieve therapeutic aims in response to prioritised public health need. It is also meant to guide policy, focus of attention and resources (time, financial, technical and human) in areas and activities which support the above aims, such as training, quality assurance, financing & insurance, regulation & monitoring, appropriate use, operational research and local production.
