Seven recommendations for building the climate shock-responsiveness of Kenya’s health system

Seven recommendations for building the climate shock-responsiveness of Kenya’s health system

The formal health system of the ASALs of northern Kenya must respond to surges in demand for health and nutrition services associated with recurrent climate shocks- especially drought and flood events – which are increasing in frequency. This policy brief presents seven recommendations from our working paper on how the health system at county level prepares and responds to climate shocks, from research undertaken in Marsabit, Turkana, and Wajir. These recommendations aim to stimulate national policy dialogue and change to build the climate shock-responsiveness of Kenya’s health system.

This brief was authored by Matt Fortnam, Peter Hailey, and Nancy Balfour
