Tupime Kaunti (County Measurement, Learning and Accountability Program)

Speeches Shim

Kenya has made significant progress in devolving the health system; bringing management authority and resources closer to the communities served, empowering county health management teams and fostering greater flexibility to meet local needs. To support this shift, functioning outcomes measurements, learning and accountability (MLA) systems at county level are essential. However, the counties have inadequate capacity to regularly collect, analyze and use data.

Tupime Kaunti is a five-year USAID-funded project that contributes to Kenya Health Sector Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Framework’s goal of one functional, sector-wide M&E system for improved decision-making, transparency, and accountability in health. The project works with county governments to strengthen outcome MLA systems to provide quality data and synthesized information for planning, implementation, policy development and decision making. Tupime Kaunti works in nine counties including Kakamega, Kisumu, Kisii, Migori, Busia, Bungoma, Vihiga, Homa Bay and Siaya. The project focuses its support in HIV, malaria and RMNCAH programs. The project is implemented by a consortium of Palladium Group (lead), Kenya School of Government and Plan International.
