When:  Wednesday, July 23

Time: 7:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.

Background:  A strengthened health referral system is critical to improving efficiency in the health system and improving patient outcomes.  This is one of the priority investment areas outlined in the second Medium Term Plan of Kenya’s Vision 2030.
The new referral strategy will improve access to the Kenya Essential Package for Health services, especially for rural and poor populations. The strategy will also strengthen communication within health facilities, between facilities, and between communities and facilities; and build the capacity of health providers to identify clients who will be better served in other facilities.

Tremendous progress has been made in malaria control in recent years. Widespread distribution of insecticide-treated bed nets, coupled with household spraying have helped large parts of the country become free from malaria.

The burden of malaria also exacts a steep economic toll, with about 170 million working days lost due to malaria illness each year.
