Health sector Kisumu County has continued to thrive in the delivery of effective services to the population. With a vision of being a dynamic,excellent and globally competitive County health service that contributes to a healthy and productive population,the health sector has been one of the pillars of the government of Kisumu. The idea is propelled by the need to transform the livelihoods of the people of Kisumu County,through responsive and sustainable technologically-driven,evidence-based and client-centred health system that is meant to accelerate the realisation of highest standards of health.

The county’s highest investment has been in health as a top priority. H.E. Governor Jack Ranguma pledged an increased budget for the health sector,with 2016/2017 financial year receiving a budget of 2.9 billion from the previous 2 billion in 2013/14. Since inception of devolution in 2013,the county grappled with poor health indicators that included high burden of non-communicable diseases,high maternal mortality ratio (597/100,000),high under five mortality rate (74/1000) and high burden of communicable diseases like HIV (prevalence=19.3%, national=5.3%). In order to reverse these indicators,the department developed a five-year strategic plan known as Kisumu County Health Sector Strategic and Investment Plan 2013-2017. Priorities of this plan include elimination of communicable diseases,reduction of non-communicable conditions,halting the rising burden of injuries and provision of essential health services. The department also pursued intersectoral and partner collaboration with related sectors and health stakeholders including,Intrahealth, USAID, APHIA, Ministry of health National Government,public health sector among others in order to optimize the intended outcomes.
