The Technical Assistance (TA) Support for the project from WHO to the Ministry of Health (MoH), Kenya will be based on and follow the procedural framework for such support from World Health Organization (WHO).
Clinical Guidelines (CG) are important for cost-effective case management and rational use of medicines and other Health Products and Technologies (HPT). To keep pace with ever changing technology and new evidence and developments in case management, CG are supposed to be reviewed and updated at least every two (2) years.
The Kenyan editions of CG Vol. 1-3 were last updated in 2011 and therefore are now obsolete.
With the recent introduction of Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in Kenya, it will be prudent to review and update all tools necessary for guiding health care service delivery such as the CG, Kenya Essential Medicines List (KEML), Kenya Essential Diagnostic List (KEDL), Guidelines for establishing and operationalizing Medicines and Therapeutics Committees (MTC) amongst others. The structures for reviewing and implementing the tools mentioned above will have to be fully operationalized.
In undertaking both the tools review & updates and structural systems strengthening, MoH will continue to partner with all the relevant stakeholders, including WHO.
The objective of the initiative/project will be to review and update the CG Vol.1-3 of 2009 and to develop new editions by June 2021.
