During the ACTwatch project period, malaria was one of the leading causes of illness and death in Kenya, killing an estimated 34,000 children under the age of five each year. Approximately three-quarters of the Kenyan population lived in an area of malaria transmission.
PSI conducted two rounds of outlet surveys in 2010 and 2011 in Kenya as part of the Independent Evaluation of the AMFm pilot phase through support from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. In late 2012, the Independent Evaluation of the AMFm Phase 1 modified its name and was then referred to as the Private Sector Co-payment Mechanism.
Kenya joined the roster of ACTwatch countries in 2013. An outlet survey was conducted in 2014 with a follow-up survey conducted in 2016. Results from all surveys and research are available at the Results & publications page.
