Project General Description

The present intervention is related to the Rural Health Project II. It aims to contribute to improving the health status of all Kenyans, through the methodical restructuring of the health sector. The project should allow the rehabilitation, modernization and construction of seven health centers. This should help to increase the number of patients treated in the health centers for which data are available. Communities in the 7 districts needed to be made aware of the identification of major health problems and the adoption of measures to address them, through health training, protection of water supply sites provision of ventilated pit latrines and treated mosquito net distribution. The project has three main components, namely: (i) health facilities; (ii) community health care; and (iii) project management.

Project Objectives
