Continuing to strengthen Kenya’s health system requires a thorough understanding of its unique strengths and weaknesses. The ministries of health used the HSA process to evaluate the state of the health system at the end of the current Annual Operational Plan (AOP), as input to the formation of the new AOP. The Health Systems Assessment (HSA) process allows countries to systematically and rapidly assess their national health system and provides policymakers and program managers with information on how to strengthen the health system.
The HSA in-country process in Kenya consisted of four elements: a consensus-building meeting with the ministries of health; a large stakeholder meeting with donors, implementing partners, bilateral organizations, and government representatives; national-level key informant interviews; and field visits to facilities and health management offices.Download Now
