When it was established, Kenya’s Inter-Agency Coordinating Committee on Health Care Financing (ICC-HCF) was intended to provide a forum for health financing stakeholders to share knowledge, deliberate, and reach consensus on contentious issues. Yet the ICC-HCF became stalled in 2011. Shortly after, the Kenya government requested assistance from the Health Policy Project (HPP) to revitalize the forum. This brief provides an assessment on the impact of HPP’s support to the ICC-HCF, the constraints that affected Kenya finalizing its healthcare financing strategy, and offers a series of recommendations for how best to support the work of the ICC-HCF going forward.
