Kenya’s Tharaka Nithi County Initiates Data Monitoring to Track and Strengthen Community-based Distribution of DMPA
Publication Date: 09/27/2017

In October 2016, Tharaka Nithi county in Kenya initiated a tracking mechanism to capture data on community health volunteers’ provision of DMPA injectable contraceptives.

Advance Family Planning local partner Jhpiego Kenya advocated for its establishment so that local leaders could track uptake of the method.

The 2011 national policy that enabled community health volunteers (CHVs) to provide contraceptive injectables built upon on pilot work spearheaded in Tharaka Nithi. However, while the county excelled in implementing the policy, county officials had been slow to incorporate its results into the county’s existing monitoring and evaluation system or health management system.
