Increased participation in health policy development both at national and county levels.
This has been achieved by conducting /adopting research on components of health system to inform health sector advocacy initiatives, conduct dialogue forums on health laws and policies, building policy advocacy partnerships and collaborative platforms. There is also provision of platforms for civil society to engage with policy makers- Members of Parliament, Members of County Assembly.
These strategies have increased number of individuals and CSOs engaging national and county governments in policy development initiatives; increased number of contributions including proposals and memorandums to policy making organs for consideration. This has contributed to enactment of policies that capture target community members views, suggestions and opinions. Examples of these policies include The Health Act, 2017, Public Benefit Organisations Act 2013, draft Maternal and Child Health Bill, 2017, The Mental Health Bill, 2016, Hospital Boards Bills, Community Health Volunteers Bill.
