Partners in Country [+]

Endorsement of global compact for progress towards universal health coverage

Not UHC2030 member

UHC2030 joint vision progress

Kenya joined IHP+ in 2007. Its Code of Conduct is equivalent to a ‘country compact’ and was signed by the Ministry of Health and 11 development partners and 2 civil society organizations in 2007. The commitments in the Code of Conduct are reviewed annually through the sector review process at the country level. Kenya’s national health plan is currently being reviewed, prior to developing a new one. It is developing a roadmap for strengthening M&E based on an assessment of the current M&E platform. An IHP+ country grant has primarily supported partnership coordination and the joint monitoring and evaluation process for the health sector. Two Kenyan Civil Society Organizations - the National Empowerment Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya and the Kenya AIDS NGOs Consortium -received grants in 2010 from the Health Policy Action Fund. In 2012, the Health Rights Advocacy Forum and again the Kenya AIDS NGOs Consortium will receive grants from the Fund.

World Bank*

The country partnership strategy (CPS) 2014-2018, draws on a fruitful relationship established over several decades. It sets out how the combined resources of the World Bank, IFC, and MIGA can, in line with the WBG's twin goals of eliminating extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity, best help Kenya rapidly reduce poverty and fulfill its ambitions of becoming a modern economy in which growing prosperity is shared across all communities.

European Commission*

The European Union spends about 100 million euros per year on Development Cooperation that directly benefits Kenya, mainly funded from the European Development Fund. The cycle of 2014-2020 amounts to €435 million. It focuses on the hard backbone of economic development: sustainable infrastructure, transport and energy; it helps the country to gain more food security and become more resilient to climate shocks, especially in the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands; and it works on increasing the accountability of public institutions, with the aim of assisting the process of devolving responsibilities to the Counties, in line with the constitution of 2010. Additional support to Kenya is channelled through other EU initiatives, in particular democracy, good governance and human rights; gender equality and equity; environmental sustainability; fight against HIV/AIDS; mother and child health, and conflict management and peace-building. Furthermore, Kenya is a beneficiary of actions under the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa. This support could build on the country's efforts to address instability, supporting protracted refugees situations and host communities, through creating economic opportunities, strengthening and building institutions, and promoting rule of law and social cohesion.
