National health accounts are a key policy tool for the health sector in Kenya. With their integrated and detailed presentation of health financing information, they have become an essential source of information, guiding the policy process and informing decisionmakers. In Kenya, healthcare is provided by a complex and changing combination of government, private for-profit, and non-profit providers. In such an environment, policymakers need reliable national and subnational information on sources and uses of funds for health, preferably comparable over time and across countries, in order to enhance health system performance. This estimation of Kenya national health accounts was undertaken to track the flow of funds in the health sector for fiscal year 2015/16 and provides a framework for measuring total public and private health expenditures.
