The Health Sector Services Fund (HSSF) is an innovative scheme established by the Government of Kenya to disburse funds directly to health facilities to enable them to improve health service delivery to local communities.
This paper reviews the experiences of HSSF since its implementation in 2010. It describes the process of implementation including facilities covered, funds disbursed and activities undertaken by the facilities. In doing so, the authors have identified several key issues for consideration in future HSSF planning.
This is a RESYST-related publication produced by researchers from KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme in Kenya. It draws on results from a RESYST-funded study that tracked the implementation and perceived impact of the Health Sector Services Fund in Kenyan health centres. .
