The Institute of Public Finance Kenya (IPF-K) jointly with Stop TB consortium commenced the implementation of a 12 months Challenge Facility for Civil Society (CFCS) project in July 2020 in Kisumu and Meru counties. The project was based on two broad outcomes which were;

  • The county Ministry of Health forms a technical working group to develop a responsibility matrix for improved TB response and;
  • Ensuring sustained increase in disbursement of the proportion of budget allocated to TB response in Kisumu and Meru counties.

The Project Objectives

The project objective was to increase community and civil society leadership and participation in TB response from prioritizing and designing interventions to implementing, monitoring, and evaluating TB services. The overall outcome was increased TB response in Kisumu and Meru counties.

The specific objectives were as follows:

  • To increase community and civil society leadership and participation in TB response from prioritizing and designing interventions to implementing, monitoring, and evaluating TB services.
  • To strengthen community advocacy in the target counties through key stakeholders’ engagement and decision-makers.
  • To generate strategic information on financial barriers experienced by CSOs working in TB to inform planning and selection of interventions-based data collected/reported through the system and the impact of COVID-19 on TB.
