IPF > 2013-2019 > Civil Society engagement in Domestic Resource Mobilization for Health

The Institute of Public Finance- Kenya partnered with NEPHAK a National Network that unites people living with HIV (PLHIV) and those affected by TB and AIDS  to come up with sustainable and innovative domestic resource mobilization initiatives for the identified counties with high burden of TB/HIV/Malaria. The main objective of this engagement was to establish evidence and tools to build the capacity of selected CSOs in domestic resource mobilization for health and specifically the 3 conditions. The 10 counties identified with a high burden of TB/HIV/Malaria were Vihiga, Homabay, Kwale, Mombasa, Busia, Kisumu, Migori, Nairobi, Siaya and Kakamega. IPF- Kenya conducted an in-depth analysis of CIDPs, County Aids Strategic Plans, the National Health Policies among other key and relevant documentation. In addition, County officers drawn from the departments of health, CSOs and CBOs in the 10 counties were interviewed. The purpose being to identify the gaps and unexplored opportunities within the targeted counties for increased domestic financing for health and specifically for the 3 conditions. Findings obtained also formed the basis for conducting technical assistance to members of CSOs and CBOs.
