Role of Citizens in Health Worker Staffing and Systems Strengthening
Citizens Voice and Action in Turkana
The ENSURE (Enhancing Nutrition Surveillance and Resilience) project was implemented for 3 years in Turkana County in Kenya. Turkana County is an arid and semi-arid area, with persistently high levels of child malnutrition and limited access to quality nutrition services. The aim of the project was to build resilience of the health systems and increase access to treatment for severely malnourished children.
The Citizens Voice and Action Approach for social accountability was used to equip the community to advocate with decision makers for increased resources and infrastructure to deliver quality nutrition services.
