Thirty years of partnership and experience on the ground provide the foundation for our work in Kenya, where we're partnering with the government to achieve its bold vision of universal health coverage. 

We're doing that by strengthening the country's health systems and health workforce. By making high-quality health care accessible to more of its people. And by producing and retaining more health workers whose skills are up to date and who are stationed where they're needed most. 

As Kenya's health workforce grows, we're helping its leaders amass the data and expertise they need to slash rates of maternal, child, and newborn mortality, end the HIV epidemic, and expand reproductive health and family planning services.
