The health sector forms a key component of the social pillar of the Vision 2030, with a goal to develop a population that is healthy and productive and able to fully participate in and contribute to other sectors of the economy. To improve the overall livelihoods of Kenyans, the country aims to provide an efficient integrated and high quality affordable health care system. Priority will be given to preventive care at community and household level, through a decentralized national health-care system. With devolution of funds and decision-making to district level, the Ministry headquarters will then concentrate on policy and research issues. With the support of the private sector, Kenya also intends to become the regional provider of choice for highly-specialized health care, thus opening Kenya to “health tourism”. Improved access to health care for all will come through: (i) provision of a robust health infrastructure network countrywide; (ii) improving the quality of health service delivery to the highest standards (iii) promotion of partnerships with the private sector; (iv) providing access to those excluded from health care for financial or other reasons.
