In March, the Kenya Ministry of Health convened an international consultation forum in collaboration with the World Bank Group and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the Health Policy Project to deliberate on the challenges of providing universal health coverage (UHC) to all Kenyans, regardless of their ability to pay, and to explore strategic and sustainable health financing options. The Kenya Health Policy Forum reviewed options and lessons learned from other countries, and proposed recommendations on how the country can improve efficiency to achieve UHC.
The meeting brought together local and international experts with diverse expertise spanning the health sector, including both the public and private sectors. Participants from Kenya included representatives from both levels of government, nongovernmental organizations, faith-based organizations, and the private sector. International speakers shared experiences from Brazil, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, and Mexico. Development partners who support Kenya’s health sector were also represented, including the USAID, the UK Department for International Development, the German Federal Enterprise for International Cooperation, and the World Bank.
