Abstract:

The 2013 Kenya Household Health Expenditure and Utilisation Survey (2013 KHHEUS), explores the health-seeking behavior, use of healthcare services, out-of-pocket health spending, and health insurance coverage of Kenyan households. The first health survey to take place since Kenya decentralized its government; the 2013 KHHEUS collects data from the country’s 47 newly-created counties. By interviewing members of 33,675 households and comparing results with those of previous years (2003 and 2007), the 2013 survey provides important insights into how healthcare utilization, spending, and insurance coverage have changed in Kenya over the past decade. This brief summary highlights the key findings from the survey which will be used to inform Kenya health and health financing policy and will support the national health accounts estimation process. The 2013 KHHEUS was conducted by the Kenya Ministry of Health with support from the USAID-funded Health Policy Project and in conjunction with the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics.
