Authors: Tharaka Nithi County Government
Tharaka Nithi county, Kenya, partnered with the Financing Alliance for Health to develop the county’s first-ever community health strategy.
Following a 2021 situational analysis, county officials recognized several key challenges with the existing community health program, including inadequate training, inequitable health service coverage, and limited partner coordination.
The 2021-2025 Community Health Strategy outlines potential interventions that address these challenges and help the county achieve universal health coverage. Examples of these interventions include ensuring optimal recruitment and deployment of county community health workers and reinforcing community referral mechanisms.
