How County Health Leadership Can Influence County Budgets
Cover Image

Author(s): Health Policy Project

Primary Language: English

Date: 3/1/2016


In 2010, Kenya adopted a new constitution which both guaranteed the right to health and devolved health service delivery to Kenya’s 47 counties. A few years later, in 2014, counties became responsible for delivering health services. Although funding to support service delivery has also been devolved to the counties, it remains inadequate for county health needs, forcing the health sector to compete with other priority sectors for scarce resources.

To help County Departments of Health secure greater allocations for the health sector, this how-to guide provides a summary of each of the main stages of the budget cycle and key milestones, suggests actions that county leaders can take during the budget process to influence county budgets, and highlights some of the potential bottlenecks at each stage.
