Health is fundamental to happiness and overall well-being of households. A healthy population translates to greater strides in economic development since such population is more productive, and saves and invests more. The important role of better health as a catalyst for development thus provides justification for governments to prioritize and invest more in health. Countries across the globe including Kenya have identified access to health services as a basic human right. This has resulted in heightened efforts towards universal healthcare coverage (UHC) to ensure citizens satisfy their right to health and right to life.
