Kenya - Policy & Political

DateJuly 11, 2017

2017 Update:  The government of Kenya commits to strengthening partnership with the private sector (including the for-profit sector) through a total market approach (TMA) to optimize the use FP funding, differentiating population segments according to ability to pay and which market players are best placed to effectively reach the different population groups with the most appropriate services and products. The Government wants to explore an all-sector strategy, using the total market approach that splits service delivery between the public and private sectors and a robust plan to improve market conditions and to support the implementation of the selected approaches. A Palladium-led, DFID-funded project Enabling Sustainable Health Equity for Family Planning (ESHE) carried out a diagnostic study of Kenya’s FP market and has recently concluded a study on Kenya’s FP supply chain. Willingness-to-pay studies, total market approach (TMA) cost-benefit analyses, and scenario planning are also being conducted by the end of 2017.  These studies will inform efforts to segment and improve efficiencies in FP service delivery.  Most critically, the analyses will provide evidence on what is needed to implement a Total Market Approach for FP in Kenya. 

The indicators will be:

  • Revised reproductive health policy to enable a TMA by 2018.
  • Increased market share of the commercial sector products because of TMA approach by 2020.

2012: Kenya's Constitution states that "every person has the right to the highest attainable standard of health, which includes the right to health care services, including RH care." Sessional Paper No. 3 of 2012 on Population Policy for National Development requires all political parties competing to form a government after a general election to formulate their programs consistent with Kenya Vision 2030. This means that for Kenya's long term socio-economic development path, including family planning has been ring-fenced against future changes in the political landscape. The Sessional Paper contains clearly spelt out strategies for family planning demand, creation, and service delivery including roles and responsibilities of the multi-sector stakeholders.

In addition, Kenya will work to implement the Reproductive Health Policy and the National Gender and Development Policy. The Kenyan Government currently provides free contraceptives to all registered private health facilities. The Health Sector Services Fund will enhance participation of local communities, including the private sector, in managing the funds and prioritizing their health needs including family planning.

FHI 360 - Policy & Political

DateOctober 31, 2016

Updated - October 2016: FHI 360 renews its commitment to expand the evidence base for family planning programming and the translation of evidence into policy and practice. In response to a lack of knowledge about the association between hormonal contraception and HIV acquisition, FHI 360 will provide evidence to support contraceptive decision-making for women at risk of HIV infection who also wish to avoid pregnancy.  FHI 360 continues its commitment to make family planning more accessible through task-shifting, by conducting research and advocacy for policy change. FHI 360 will continue to work with government stakeholders in FP2020 countries to develop, implement, and monitor costed implementation plans for family planning. In addition, FHI 360 will advocate for the inclusion of family planning as an essential part of an integrated approach to development; when women and girls are able to plan the size of their families and time their pregnancies, we make progress on nearly every Sustainable Development Goal. 

July 11, 2012: FHI 360 will expand the evidence base for safe and effective family planning and will translate high-quality evidence into policy and practice.

DateJuly 11, 2012

2017 Update: Read the commitment here

2014:Mozambique will revitalize family planning information, services, and outreach for youth, build public-private partnerships to improve the distribution of contraceptive commodities, and increase the number of health facilities offering at least three contraceptive methods from one-third to 50 percent by 2015. Efforts will be put forth to train at least 500 health providers to provide post-partum and post-abortion counseling on family planning and contraception by 2015.

Additionally, the Government of Mozambique will stimulate an increase in demand of family planning services, by expanding the provision of information and family planning services in rural and peri-urban communities. It will do this by promoting community based distribution of contraceptives and the participation and involvement of communities, health agents, traditional midwives, non-governmental organizations, and mobile clinics. Mozambique, in particular, will intensify community involvement at local levels through engaging religious leaders and community leaders in educating and advocating for various methods of family planning.
