Christian Aid PPA Health Governance

HERAF with the support of Christian Aid is in the second phase of implementing a project titled, “Programme Partnership Agreement (PPA) - Health Governance”. The project focuses on Health Sector governance and aims at enhancing  community member’s, community leaders, health care workers, health management committee members and Narok county government officials understanding of human rights, the constitution, health policy framework and the concept of citizens participation in decision making and accountability processes in health sector. It also aims at achieving improved health for women, people living with HIV, children and men through supporting interventions related to HIV, TB, Malaria and Maternal Child Health (MCH). The objectives of this project are to:

  1. Strengthen community participation in county policy and decision making processes.
  2. Strengthen community members’ skills for monitoring the standards of health services delivery at Narok county health facilities.
  3. Increase citizen’s participation in health sector budgeting processes in Narok County.

The three thematic areas are aligned to the PPA-Health programme specific objectives which are:

  1. Increased adoption of safe preventive practices and more equitable access to health services
  2. Reducing HIV stigma and discrimination and changing social norms that are harmful to health
  3. Advocacy to inform policy, plans and/or budgets related to health issues/rights of women, children and PLWHIV at national, county and community level

The activities that the project will undertake aim at empowering communities with techniques of monitoring the standards of health services delivery at the six facilities that are under the project and developing a Community Score Card for the facilities which when implemented will lead to improved services. It is expected that by the end of this project, there will be;

  • Increased knowledge and awareness among communities on their health rights and responsibilities towards the realization of the right to health
  • Improved working relationships between health care providers, health facility management teams and communities in terms of planning and utilization of resources at their disposal
  • Improvement in the quality of services offered at public health facilities in Kenya through community monitoring processes and activities
