Jhpiego Kenya

Jhpiego enhances the health and saves the lives of women and families in limited-resource settings. For nearly four decades, Jhpiego has put evidence-based health innovations into practice to overcome barriers to high-quality health care services for the world's most vulnerable populations. Originally rooted in reproductive, maternal and child health, Jhpiego has grown to provide technical assistance on new challenges, including HIV/AIDS, malaria and cervical cancer prevention—reflecting the increasing interconnectedness of global health.

Kenya is one of the first countries in which Jhpiego worked. Jhpiego started training Kenyan health care providers in family planning methods, establishing an office in Nairobi in the early 1990s, and several others since. Jhpiego has received support from diverse funders, including bilateral donors such as the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), U.K. Department for International Development (DFID) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); multilateral donors such as the Global Fund for AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis; and private foundations and corporations such as the Rockefeller Foundation, Wallace Global Fund and Pfizer Corporation. Currently, with more than 170 in-country staff, and several large programs being implemented – including a Gates-funded urban family planning project and the APHIAplus Kamili project -- the Kenya program is one of Jhpiego’s largest.

Jhpiego is AFP’s lead partner in Kenya, working to bring about policy change to allow trained volunteer community health workers (CHWs) to offer injectable contraceptives ,and will coordinate identification and support to a local partner in Kenya.

ÉTUDE DE CAS: Quatre contés du Kenya développent des stratégies de planification familiale chiffrées

Source: AFP

Quatre contés kenyans ont développé et adopté de nouvelles stratégies de planification familiale chiffrées sur une durée de cinq ans (2014-2018), également connues comme « plans d’exécution chiffrés ». Ces stratégies établissent les bases qui permettront de prioriser et estimer les coûts de la planification familiale, tout en servant de guide à la planification, mobilisation des ressources, mise en oeuvre et suivi des programmes à l’échelle des contés. Débutant avec l’année fiscale 2015/2014, les contés bénéficieront pour la première fois d’un cadre établi pour allouer une ligne budgétaire à la planification familiale.
