FP is not only a key intervention for improving health but also a key strategy for the achievement of national and international development goals. Identified as a priority component in the Kenyan National Reproductive Health Policy, ESHE facilitates growth of the private FP market by offering specific and targeted support to a network of qualified and registered service providers/facilities comprising of 60 integrated health kiosks and close to 200 private health clinics.
