Author: Dr.Uzma Alam

The effort towards improving the health of the population in Kenya continues to produce results driven by accurate and timely data. Over the past three decades, the country has witnessed impressive progress in tackling priority diseases such as malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. Further, progress has been realized in addressing childhood diseases such as measles and diarrhea, largely through the expansion of key health interventions, including vaccines and other preventive health technologies. In addition, the country continues to focus on maternal health, by expanding health services to ensure that lives are not lost due topregnancy-related complications.
