Private Sector Health Partnership – Kenya

The Private Sector Health Partnership in Kenya – (PSHP Kenya) is a private sector collective action initiative in support of the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ health and Kenya’s Beyond Zero Campaign.

The health and well-being of over 3.5 million women, new-borns, children, adolescents and family members in Mandera, Migori, Marsabit, Wajir, Isiolo and Lamu are planned to improve through this initiative by 2020. The 6 counties have a combined population of approximately 10% of the national population but contribute close to 50% of the country’s maternal deaths.

Currently the PSHP Kenya collaboration is signed between the National Government Ministry of Health and County Governments of Wajir, Isiolo, Lamu, Mandera, Migori and Marsabit, and private sector companies Safaricom, Philips, MSD, Huawei and GSK (GlaxoSmithKline). The PSHP Kenya welcomes other private players on board who can make a significant difference in the maternal health status in the 6 counties.

PSHP Kenya is supported by a secretariat established by KHF and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Kenya.
