Ben Tsofa: Devolution and planning in Kenya
Ben Tsofa examines the effects of political decentralization in Kenya. His talk touches on sub-national level health sector governance and accountability. Ben presents a brief history of devolution in Kenya including the struggle for a new constitution and how this may have a future impact on delivery of quality health care. He observes that with ongoing decentralization i.e. with the new county system in place after Kenya passed a new constitution in 2010, there is a potential for improving community participation and accountability in management of public resources in Kenya through the county system.
