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. 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. The survey provides critical evidence to inform the development of Kenya’s latest health financing strategy and policy decisions related to the future universal health coverage and the National Hospital Insurance Fund, and will support the wider national health accounts estimation process.
