Kenya Pharmaceutical Country Profile, November 2010
(2010; 63 pages)


This Pharmaceutical Country Profile for Kenya (2010) has been developed by the Ministry of Medical Services with support of the World Health Organization. The Profile contains information on existing socio-economic and health-related conditions, resources, regulatory structures and processes and outcomes relating to the pharmaceutical sector in Kenya. The information is intended for use in health policy making and strategic planning; and it is part of ongoing efforts to integrate pharmaceuticals within the national health policy and strategic framework. Because pharmaceuticals are cross-cutting and multi-faceted, appropriate pharmaceutical policies require analysis and monitoring of a wide range of data from multiple sources. This Profile is the first compilation of such data for Kenya, and it provides a much needed reference for Government, health development and implementing partners as well as other health stakeholders. All efforts have been made to compile data that is nationally representative and up to date, by drawing from international sources (e.g. the World Health Statistics), as well as from national and institutional surveys and databases. The data sources for each piece of information are annexed as tables the end of this document.
