Advocacy and Public Policy project

IPF > 2013-2019 > Advocacy and Public Policy project

The Institute of Public Finance Kenya (IPF-Kenya) in partnership with PATH sought to advance evidence-based policy solution in reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, adolescent health and immunization (RMNCAH+I) programmes through the Advocacy and Public Policy project. The project aimed to reduce maternal and neonatal deaths from preventable and treatable diseases and illnesses in. In addition to the National level of government, the project was also implemented in Kakamega, Vihiga and Kisumu Counties.
The Institute of Public Finance Kenya Conducted budget analysis for RMNCAH  and Immunization sub-programmes both at national level and within the targeted counties. The analyses highlighted sectors performance between 2014-2018, its medium-term priorities, trends in financing against sector requirements, interlinkage with other sectors, challenges and recommendations. In addition, the Institute participated in budget advocacy campaigns in Kisumu and Kakamega counties which brought together members of both the county Assembly and Executive and CSO groups to understand the status of RMNCAH+I programme as well as provide recommendation for improved RMNCAH+I indicators that are currently very low in the target Counties.
