Overview

International Business & Technical Consultants, Inc.

The ESPS team will conduct county institutional capacity assessments in 5 counties of Kenya (Busia, Kakamega, Migori, Mombasa, and Turkana). The HPN Office selected these priority counties based on their current health portfolio investments (HIV/AIDS, RMNCAH, Nutrition, Malaria and Health Systems Strengthening).


This county institutional capacity assessment is therefore expected to analyze the “what” and “how to” strategies used; facilitate subject matter experts panel discussions (individually and through validation
workshops); and document workshop outputs into well synthesized strategic directions for future programming. Discussions on the future “what” and “the how” program implementation strategies and their cost feasibilities will form part of this panel analysis.
