HEALTH PROCUREMENT RESEARCH-HJ-09-2022
Economic and Social Rights Centre – Hakijamii is a national civil society organization working on governance in over 15 counties in Kenya. We seek among other things to amplify community voices to effectively demand their ESC rights and live a dignified life. We continue to champion discourse for marginalized communities to effectively contribute to governance process at all levels. Our main strategies of achieving our goals are Advocacy, Public Interest Litigation and Research. As an organization, we have made substantial contribution towards ESC rights policies and cut a niche in working with marginalized community groups in Kenya. This has been made possible through support from the government, donors, communities, CSO’s, CBO’s, FBOs amongst others.
The Health Program is implementing a project under the title ‘Promoting Health Service Delivery through Inclusive and Accountable Health Governance.’ The objectives of the project include inter alia the need to promote pro-poor health service delivery models through inclusive policies, budgetary allocation, and health governance tools, improving COVID-19 procurement processes to advance equitable access to medicines and medical equipment, education, and social services in general as well as relationship-building and facilitated problem-solving in addressing corruption in health services in Kenya.
To fully understand the procurement processes during Covid-19 period, Hakijamii seeks to commission research that will monitor the efficacy of procurement process during COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on right to Health in the country with a view to collecting lessons and best practices on accountability in future crisis scenarios. Hakijamii intends to use the outcomes of these research for evidence-based advocacy for the review of the procurement laws, policies, and practices to enhance the reduction of the costs of healthcare in Kenya and thus enhance the realisation of the right to health for all in Kenya. The research will be grounded on the hypothesis that poor procurement practices basically inhibit or limit the accessibility of quality health care in Kenya as well as leading to the loss of public funds and resources.
