Date of Publication:

The second National Health Sector Strategic Plan (NHSSP II – 2005-2010) outlines the health sector strategies aimed at achieving the national development priorities defned by the government of Kenya
and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). NHSSP II’s goal is to reduce inequalities in health care services and reverse the downward trend in health-related outcome indicators. One of the strategic
objectives of this goal is to enhance partnerships in the health sector.
The health sector in Kenya is inclusive of different stakeholders ranging from training institutions to research centers and Nongovernmental Organizatons (NGOs) with special interest in the health maters of the country. The mapping of Health Resource Partner Institutions (HRPIs) in Kenya is part of a wider study being carried out in selected African countries to model a sustained approach for strengthening health governance and stewardship in low income countries. The African Centre for Global Health and Social Transformation (ACHEST) has facilitated this study in an effort to map out and examine HRPIs in order to understand them better and develop a strategy that will empower and provide HRPIs with appropriate capacity to support health system stewardship and governance. Ultimately, the study is expected to recommend models for strengthening the national health stewardship and governance using HRPIs.
