Health Policy Plus

Speeches Shim

The overarching objective for Health Policy Plus (HP+) in Kenya is to contribute to increased, sustainable, predictable, and adequate financing for programs and health policy implementation.  The objective contributes directly to Kenya’s Vision 2030 and its 2018-2022 Medium Term Plan.  The health sector in Kenya is faced with multiple financing challenges, including declining donor support, and increasing out-of-pocket expenditures that act as a barrier to access and contribute to catastrophic health expenditures. 

The Kenya Health Financing Strategy was expected to address these challenges but has not been concluded – leaving the sector vulnerable to tackle emerging issues that require heavy investment, such as scaling up and sustaining antiretroviral treatment.  Kenya’s partner countries in East Africa face similar challenges, and the regional health secretariats lack sufficient data and tools to support them.
