Kenyan rural eye hospital finds profit in service
Tuesday, January 28, 2014
Data from the Kenya National Health Accounts, which monitors resource allocations in Kenya’s health sector, indicates that the private sector caters for 37 per cent of total healthcare expenditure, a figure that has dropped from 54 per cent 10 years earlier. The Government adds on about 30 per cent, which has remained constant over the last decade. The result of this has been an increased reliance on donor funding and patients’ out-of-pocket spending.
