Increasing Access to Quality Health Services in Kenya's North Eastern Province

Kenya’s northern region is a vast and sparsely populated area where limited resources and persisting stigma related to sexual health and HIV and AIDS create a complex health service delivery scenario. For five years, APHIAplus Northern Arid Lands (NAL) has implemented a strategy to increase local health system and community capacity for quality health service delivery. This brief discusses the project’s experience in Kenya's North Eastern Province, providing recommendations for future efforts in comparable contexts.
