The promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya on 27 August 2010 was a major milestone towards improving health standards. The chapter on the right to the highest attainable standard of health, as enshrined in the Bill of Rights in the Constitution, has raised citizens’ expectations on improved quality of health service delivery. The social pillar of the Vision 2030 emphasizes the need to improve the overall livelihoods of Kenyans through provision of efficient and high-quality healthcare systems.
The Ministry of Health, in the Kenya Health Sector Strategic and Investment Plan 2013-2017 (KHSSIP), shifted emphasis from curative to prevention and promotion of individual and community health. This aggregates service delivery into Tiers. The tiers are organized from 1 to 4; where Tier 1 is the community health services; Tier 2- Dispensaries and Health Centres (primary care services); Tier 3 - Sub County and County hospitals; and Tier 4 – referral hospitals including former provincial, national/tertiary health facilities.
