Kenya Health 2018

The Service Delivery Indicators (SDI) track performance and quality of service delivery in primary schools and frontline health facilities across Africa and other regions of the world. The indicators can be used to track progress within and across countries over time and aim to enhance the active monitoring of service delivery to increase public accountability and good governance. They transform the way the quality of social services are measured, and in so doing, how countries develop policies and design interventions to improve health and education outcomes around the globe.

Service Delivery Indicators

The SDI Health survey team visited a sample of 3,094 health facilities across Kenya between March and July 2018. The 2018 Kenya SDI was the largest to date. The sample was composed of 1,781 public facilities and 1,313 private facilities. The survey team observed 13,026 workers for absenteeism and assessed 4,430 health workers for competence using patient case simulation. The data collected were representative of the 47 counties, of facility location (i.e. urban/rural areas), facility ownership (i.e. public/private), and level of facility (i.e. first level hospital/health center/dispensary and clinic). The health workers were broken down into three categories: (i) doctors (specialist and general medical doctors), (ii) clinical officers, and (iii) nurses. This survey represents the second SDI in Kenya’s health sector.
