dc.description.abstract This case study describes the Government of Kenya's initiative to expand the supply of health care and strengthen primary health care through implementation of the Health Sector Services Fund (HSSF), which provides direct cash transfers to primary health facilities. This initiative, launched in 2010, is a direct response to challenges identified by the Public Expenditure Tracking Surveys in making funds for operation and maintenance available to the health facilities, and builds on lessons from initiatives supported by the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) in the Coastal Region. en
