The goal of the Essential Health Services (EHS) programme is to contribute to achieving the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Kenya - in particular a reduction in infant and maternal mortality.
The leadership and technical capacity of the Ministries of Health continues to be strengthened with support from EHS that is transparent, integrated, flexible and strategic, supporting a transition to a SWAp (Sector Wide Approach). The relationships between EHS staff and their counterparts at the central, provincial, district and community levels are a key element in the success of the programme.
