Our report in collaboration with Observer Research Foundation provides an account of Africa’s battle against COVID-19, maps a profile of the continent’s vulnerabilities that render it susceptible to systemic collapse, and analyses ways in which it can build resilience in the face of future crises. The report takes a systemic perspective, and provides analyses oriented around four axes: Health, Economic, Socio-political and Technological systems; and three key elements: Risk, Response and Resilience.

The Kenya Government’s commitment to provision of quality and affordable health care for all Kenyans from a constitutional, policy and even global perspective is not in doubt. As a critical component of economic development, Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is identified as one of the planks of the government’s “Big Four” Agenda.

Despite obvious successes in health outcomes, in part driven by Devolution, challenges especially of inadequate medical personnel, low specialized health infrastructure to deal with a rise in non- communicable diseases and cases of injuries remain. This has engendered increasing demand for health services, piling pressure on the government budget.

The leasing of medical equipment (Managed Equipment Services-MES) project was initiated in 2015 as an alternative health care financing option to scale up health infrastructure for provision of specialized medical care. The question of whether this was the most cost-effective intervention, especially as a public private partnership (PPP) project, is what this publication sought to investigate. Which then begs the question: four years down the line, is the public getting value for money from implementation of the project?

The alcohol industry is one of the top contributors of ordinary revenue to Government. The revenue generated from taxation of alcohol represents a gain to Kenya because it provides resources that may be directed for other useful purposes like public service delivery. It is also best practice that taxes collected be used in mitigation of externalities caused by excessive consumption of alcohol. Some of the mitigation efforts include public education. Alcohol contributes a significant portion of excise taxes among categories of total excisable goods. Throughout the period from 2012 to 2017, excise taxes on alcoholic beverages remained as the single largest contributor to excise taxes and accounted for between 64 and 41% of excise revenues recorded.
