Kenya eye health system assessment


The goal of providing adequate and equitable healthcare that meets the needs and aspirations of Kenyans continues to be undermined by weak national and local health systems. This assessment aimed to provide a comprehensive overview of the key health system functions as they relate to eye health in Kenya. It is based on the World Health Organisation’s health system strengthening building blocks framework.

Using a tool adapted from the Eye Health Systems Assessment (EHSA) manual and the WHO Eye Care System Assessment Tool (ECSAT), data was collected from four counties of Kajiado, Nakuru, Homa Bay and Nairobi, representing the upper, middle and lower strata of the Kenya Human Development Index and the capital city.
