In June 2013, President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya announced policies to remove user fees in dispensaries and health centers and to provide free maternal health services in all public health facilities. This report presents the findings of a study conducted in Kenya by the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) to establish baseline measures for evaluating the impact of these policies. The Kenya Ministry of Health, with support from HPP, identified the need to monitor and evaluate the impact of the policies on utilization, service provision, and revenue collection, among other indicators.
