It acknowledges that improved health is a critical driver to the achievement of this vision. Kenya‟s Vision 2030 aims to transform Kenya into a globally competitive and prosperous country with a high quality of life by 2030” by transforming the country from a third world country into an industrialized, middle income country. The strategic also plan mirrors the aspirations of the Constitution 2010 which guarantees the highest attainable standard of health as a right while devolving governance to ensure improved service delivery, greater accountability, improved citizen participation and equity in the distribution of resources. The plan is further guided by the Kenya Health Policy 2012-2030 which targets to attain a level and distribution of health commensurate with that of a middle income country, through attainment of specific health impact targets. The plan has been developed using a consultative approach involving all the key stakeholders in the health sector, while taking cognizance of all new actors under a devolved system of governance. It includes key recommendations from the end term review of the National Health Sector Strategic Plan (NHSPII), and takes into account evidence from emerging health trends, and global priorities. These recommendations have guided prioritization of interventions for implementation during this strategic plan.
