This brief summarizes three policy shifts related to free maternal healthcare, budgeting for health, and HIV financing that have led to measurable positive impacts for the people of Kenya. HP+’s strategies in support of these policy shifts include generating evidence for advocates and policymakers, improving public financial management, and strengthening stewardship, accountability, and transparency of health budgets. Results include a policy shift in health insurance coverage for maternal healthcare, an improved process for allocating funds for health at the county level, and increased financial sustainability for Kenya’s HIV response. These results and impacts, for which HP+ has worked hand-in-hand with the government to achieve, contribute to Kenya’s progress toward universal health coverage.
