The Ministerial Annual Work Plan 2016/17 is anchored on key policy and strategy
documents, including the Kenya Health Policy, 2014-2030 and the Ministerial Strategic Plan,
2014-2018 whose overall goal is to attain equitable, affordable, accessible and quality health
care for all. This goal encompasses the focus of the health sector in the medium to long term
so as to contribute to the achievement of Kenya Vision 2030. In this regard, the vision of the
Ministry is „To build a progressive, responsive and sustainable health care system for
accelerated attainment of highest standards of health to all Kenyans’. Consequently, the
mandate of the Ministry as derived from the Constitution 2010 and the Executive Presidential
Circular No. 2/2013 is Health Policy, Standards and Regulation, National Referral Services
and Capacity Building.
The Annual Work Plan, 2016/17 has been structured to conform to the guidelines provided
