    Health Care Systems in My Country


    Health systems comprise all organisations and resources obligated to improving and sustaining good health. The goal of a health care system should be to facilitate the needs of a population and promote fairness of financial contribution. Health care systems are typically indigenous to their country, with various different policies around the world.

    Kenya has a total population of 44 million people, and its capital city Nairobi being home to over three million. With so many lives to account for and many being under the poverty line, the healthcare systems instilled rarely provide for the impoverished regions of the country. Kenya is listed as one of the countries suffering with a severe shortage of health care workers. There are two reasons for this: little funding and lack of adequate medical facilities. In Kenya’s 2030 development plan, health care policies aim to achieve the highest possible standard of health by supporting affordable and quality health services to all Kenyans.


    The Kenyan healthcare at a glance, includes basic primary care provided at healthcare centres or dispensaries. The dispensaries provide out-patient care and are typically managed by nurses. The services cover simple ailments such as cold and flu, malaria and basic skin conditions. A patient who presents with more serious clinical symptoms will be referred to a health centre. Secondary care, such as rehabilitative care is provided in sub-district, district, and provincial hospitals. Sub-district hospitals are small and similar to primary health centres but will sometimes include a surgery unit for simple procedures. District hospitals usually have the ability to supply advanced medical and surgical services. Provincial hospitals normally cover a great region and can provide more specialised care. Nairobi, the capital city, and the Central Province of Kenya deliver more favourable health care facilities in the country, whereas the North-Eastern Province is poorly developed in this aspect.

    Hospital systems in Kenya belong to three main categories: public, private non-profit organisations (including faith-based missionary hospitals and non-governmental organisations) and private for-profit health care. Majority of the population is served by public health care providers which are focused on aiding and addressing disease burden in the country. Government run hospitals operate approximately 40% of health care in Kenya and NGOs occupy 15%. In the major urban areas of Kenya, including Nairobi and the coastal towns, the private sector dominates 43% of health care available.

    A large percentage of health care facilities in Kenya do not reach international standard and proceed with very limited resources. In early 2017, health care professionals entered a crippling 100-day strike in attempt to improve their working conditions and pay. This led the country into havoc, with claims of one doctor for every 10,000 patients. Reports on increases in maternal mortality cases circulated the country. These disruptions indicated the frustrations of the public health care workers. Public hospitals are overloaded and understaffed with little to no facilities implying the severe lack of funding. Many graduates of medicine go to other countries to seek employemnt due to lack of growth opportunities in Kenya, resulting in a depleted work force year after year. Conversely, private clinics, especially in Nairobi, operate at a western level of care and include many amenities including extensive radiology and laboratory services. Private clinics, however, suffer from limited inpatient capacity and the most critical issue is that they are hardly affordable. This means that for the large majority of people living in Kenya, healthcare is inaccessible. Despite having some of the best heath care professionals in the region, many individuals are unable to access professional help. Primary health care centres have shown to be one of the key ways in reducing mortality and financial costs for patients as simple medical ailments are not left to manifest into greater, and more expensive, problems.


    There is a great urgency to improve the health care systems in Kenya and the leadership and governance required to provide wholesome health reforms to cover all aspects of preventative, curative and promotive health care.
