We have achieved ‘cost share’ success in Kenya by:

Our government partners work with us to design what we measure to improve equity in decision-making and efficiency in health sector spending. In Kenya, we co-designed dashboards with facilities and county health management teams to give them usable and useful data on health system gaps, and offer routine training to build data literacy and adoption at different levels of government.
Our dashboards are designed as a complement to national data systems like KHIS2, offering real-time data direct from mothers to help governments spend limited resources with greater efficiency.
County Reproductive Health Coordinator Caroline Macharia helped Jacaranda co-design dashboards to give her better visibility into the gaps hindering timely maternal care in Murang’a County.
