Abstract:

The Kenya Ministry of Medical Services and the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation, in partnership with the Health Policy Project of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), convened two meetings to discuss Kenya’s devolution of power from the central government to the counties and its impact on the health sector. The second meeting on October 24, 2012, brought together many representatives of government, development partners, and other sectors who have a stake in the implementation of this significant change in Kenya’s Constitution. The participants discussed the steps the ministries of health and other government authorities have undertaken to move the devolution process along, as well as identified priority activities as part of a roadmap for going forward. This report summarizes the meeting’s proceedings and the country's key next steps.
