This USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project report synthesizes the findings of the County Health Accounts (CHAs) of 12 selected counties for financial years (FY) 2013/14 and 2014/15. The 12 counties are Bomet, Isiolo, Kakamega, Kisumu, Makueni, Migori, Mombasa, Nairobi, Nyeri, Siaya, Tharaka Nithi, and Turkana. The report compares health expenditures in the 12 counties to provide evidence of a pattern for sources and uses of health funds. It pays special attention to key financing sources for healthcare, the role of financing agents in managing healthcare funds, providers of healthcare goods and services, and the services purchased with these funds.
