Transforming Healthcare in Kenya: USAID Tujenge Jamii's Impact

In an era where quality healthcare is a fundamental right for every citizen, Gold Star Kenya and Deloitte Kenya, as the driving forces behind the USAID Tujenge Jamii program, are collaborating with the counties of Nakuru, Samburu, Baringo, and Laikipia to revolutionize healthcare delivery. Through the Primary Care Network (PCN) program, this ground-breaking initiative is not just a game-changer; it's a beacon of hope for healthier communities.

With the unwavering support of PEPFAR, the USAID Tujenge Jamii program is committed to providing technical assistance to these counties in their quest to champion and support the Ministry of Health's universal health coverage agenda. This collaborative effort is making strides in the government's bottom-up transformation agenda, with health at its core.

At the heart of this transformation lies the Primary Care Network, a visionary initiative launched by the President. It aims to reframe healthcare delivery in Kenya, bringing it closer to the people who need it the most. The Primary Care Network is not just a project; it's a pledge to bring quality healthcare to the grassroots level.

One of the critical aspects is the Afya Bora Mashinani, an initiative that underscores the significance of quality healthcare at the grassroots level. It's about ensuring that every community member has access to the healthcare they deserve. The Primary Health Care Bill and Community Strategy Program are integral components to enhance health outcomes, and ensure no one is left behind.

Central to our vision is the collaboration between stakeholders, which includes communities, government institutions, and healthcare facilities. These partnerships form the backbone of the Primary Care Network's success. Through collaborative efforts, we are addressing the diverse needs of the community, from essential healthcare resources to access and support.

To drive this mission forward, Gold Star Kenya and Deloitte Kenya have been actively involved in developing baseline assessments. These assessments are key to identifying community needs, understanding the requirements of PCN facilities, identifying essential resources, and establishing vital partnerships. With these assessments, we can tailor our interventions to fit the unique needs of each community, ensuring that healthcare is accessible, affordable, and effective.

Our commitment to transparency and accountability is evident through the development and dissemination of reports based on these baseline assessments. By sharing the findings with the community and key stakeholders, we foster a sense of ownership and a collective drive for better healthcare.

The journey towards universal health coverage, quality primary care, and improved health outcomes is not just a dream; it's a reality we are building together. Gold Star Kenya, Deloitte Kenya, and our dedicated partners are proud to be at the forefront of this healthcare revolution.
