EU Project

Health Rights Advocacy Forum (HERAF) as a partners of Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) won a competitive accountable grant in December 2008 amounting to 221, 819 Euros from European Union (EU) (who contributed 80.66 percent of the total budget) to implement a three-year project to strengthen community participation in Health Sector Management and Governance (HSMG) in three Districts of Kenya; Kwale, Mbeere and Nyeri North. The project commenced in January 2009 and was concluded in December 2011.

Specifically, HSMG project sought to; a) strengthen the capacity of grass roots communities to hold the health sector governance structures accountable in implementing rights-based approach to health care programs at district and community levels, b) empower the District Health Management Boards to represent the interests of the community in the implementation of the health sector programs at the district level, c) improve the health service delivery by empowering the communities to monitor the quality of the health services provided and demand quality services, and d) advocate for transparency and accountability in planning, budgeting, allocation and management of resources allocated to the community-based health facilities to effectively deal with prevailing disease conditions.
The project targeted the Health Facility Management Committees (HFMC), District Health Management Teams (DHMT), and District Health Management Boards (DHMB), MOH staff working at health facilities, Civil Society Organizations (CSO), and the general public. The results of the HSMG were intended to directly benefit women, children, youth, People Living with HIV and AIDS, (PLWA), and Persons with Disabilities (PWD) among others from the three intervention districts by increasing access and utilization of available health care services.
An end of the project evaluation was conducted at the end of the project and gave the following results.
