“We are called the et cetera”: experiences of the poor with health financing reforms that target them in Kenya

Kenya has implemented a number of healthcare reforms, demonstrating its intention to extend financial risk protection and service coverage for poor and vulnerable groups. These reforms include the provision of free maternity services, user-fee removal in public primary health facilities and a health insurance subsidy programme (HISP) for the poor. However, the available evidence points to inequity and the likelihood that the poor will still be left behind with regards to financial risk protection and service coverage. In this study, the authors examined the experiences of the poor with health financing reforms that target them.
