The 2013 general election in Kenya took place on March 4, 2013, giving citizens a chance to elect new leaders, including a new President, for a five-year term. To help maintain and further progress in the health area, the Health Policy Project documented the pledges, commitments, and promises made by the 2013 presidential candidates about the health sector in Kenya. This report outlines what the candidates and their parties promised to do about different health issues and how these promises align with current health sector aspirations described in the government’s existing short- and long-term policy and planning documents. The goal is to provide stakeholders in the health sector with a reference point from which to hold the incoming government accountable on its public promises and a tool for advocacy in pursuing further commitments that can improve the public health sector.
