While the government at both national and county level has made great strides to prioritize RMNCAH and immunization, too many women, newborns, and children continue to die from preventable and treatable conditions. In addition, policy gaps still remain, with the main challenge increasingly being that policies are not effectively implemented. In collaboration with and funding from PATH, we are implementing a Policy Advocacy and Accountability for Primary Health Care, Reproductive, Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) and immunization project in the Lake Region Economic Bloc (LREB) counties.
This project will continue to influence prioritization of and investment in PHC, immunization and RMNCAH in Kisumu County as one of the deep dive counties along with Kakamega and Vihiga; and expand to other Lake Region Economic Bloc (LREB) counties for scaling up social impact on improving MNH outcomes.
The objectives of the project are as follows:
Overall, these objectives aim to strengthen advocacy efforts, promote accountability, and ensure access to essential health services and commodities in the targeted counties and at the national level.
