Interrelation of Malaria Control Interventions and Community Health Systems Strengthening in Kenya

Interrelation of Malaria Control Interventions and Community Health Systems Strengthening in Kenya

"Malaria control interventions are mostly being implemented within the structures of the local health system with potential to promote the whole system. In contrary health system strengthening initiatives can benefit specific disease control interventions at the same time. In order to find out more on the mutual interrelation between malaria control interventions and strengthening of local health systems, this study was conducted in Kenya between August 2010 and January 2011 at four study sites (Embu East, Kisii Central, Pokot Central, Nyakach District) that randomly sampled a total of 1,416 households. Key-Informant Interviews were conducted with health personnel, NGO and FBO representatives and community opinion leaders to assess the respondents’ views on key issues and to record key responses on implementation malaria control interventions and their interrelation with health system strengthening initiatives."
