Capturing what has worked, and not worked, during the implementation of the The Private Sector Innovation Programme for Health (PSP4H) in Kenya.

The Private Sector Innovation Programme for Health (PSP4H) was designed and funded by DFID to be an action research project exploring the markets in which poor people pay for-profit providers for healthcare. The overall objective of the PSP4H programme is to learn how a market systems approach might benefit pro-poor health interventions, to inform future programming.

Intervention description

This report assesses the healthcare innovations discovered through the on-going course of PSP4H’s implementation.

It highlights the innovations that have worked and what did not work. It explores how these innovations have gone beyond their original interventions and been replicated in different health market areas and in the East African region.

Evidence methodology

The report relies on information gathered from the programme's monitoring and evaluation system.
