Transparency and Accountability in Kenya’s Health Financing Models

This study report was developed through an extensive review of documents and validation process through a stakeholders’ workshop.

In recent years Kenya has experienced a series of health financing reforms aimed at advancing financial risk protection against different segments of the population. Some of the notable initiatives are: 1) Free maternity services (Linda mama program) that covers ante natal care, safe delivery services as well as post-natal care, 2) Health insurance subsidies program for the poor that provides insurance coverage for the indigents and 3) NHIF cover for all secondary school students. Recently, the Government of Kenya committed to achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by 2022 as one of the pillars of the Big Four Agenda.
