Authors: Financing Alliance for Health
In 2019, the Financing Alliance for Health produced a series of fact cards providing key information on health landscapes, financing, and community health systems across eight countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, including Kenya.
In 2014, Kenya adopted a four-tier health system composed of community health services, primary care services, and county and national referral services. The new system was designed to strengthen care delivery for all, improve community structures, and improve resource mobilization. Since its adoption, the program has improved key health indicators, particularly in maternal and child health. However, county health budgets remain low and there is still a gap in the community health workforce to meet the needs of populations.
