Access to healthcare services is a basic human right, yet millions of people worldwide are still unable to receive the essential health services they need, as per the World Health Organization (WHO). Like many developing countries, Kenya is working towards achieving Universal health coverage by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The government’s recent focus on the healthcare sector is crucial for achieving SDG number 3, which aims to ensure good health and well-being for all. However, according to the Community Health Strategy (2020-2025), Kenya’s growing population, increasing healthcare needs, including non-communicable and infectious diseases, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic, have stretched public funding and decreased international funding for healthcare. Therefore, it is essential for the country to collaborate with relevant stakeholders and mobilize research and development resources to maximize the limited available resources and achieve the best health outcomes.
