Support to the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation: Eye Care Programme Kenya 2009 to 2013: end of term evaluation

The Kenya Eye Programme 2009-2013 was the latest phase of a long-established eye health programme that began in the 1990s with the aim of introducing eye health services throughout Kenya.

The evaluation focuses on the 2009-2013 element, which targeted 12 districts within Nakuru and Machakos counties. It aimed to develop capacity to provide quality eye care services in static health facilities through infrastructure development and capacity building. It also sought to achieve greater sustainability through integrating eye care into primary health care and into health systems and structures.

The primary aim of this evaluation was to assess the progress and impact of the programme. Publication date: November 2013
