Acknowledgement

The National Coordinating Agency for Population and Development (NCAPD),


wishes to acknowledge with gratitude, the contributions of all those who have
been involved in the development of this District Specific Strategic Plan (DSSP).

Special thanks goes to district-level stakeholders who got together and through
consensus building, brought out the issues pertinent to their district and likely
solutions. Officials from the Ministries of Planning and National Development and
Health at the district level (DDO, DSO, DMOH and DPHN) contributed
significantly through supporting the stakeholders’ proposals with factual
information and consolidating the ideas into a preliminary draft.

Notably important to acknowledge is the team of officers from the NCAPD who
participated in providing technical expertise, and, coordinated the field activities
as needed to make the process of plan development successful. The role of Mr.
Karugu Ngatia in coordinating the overall exercise is acknowledged.

Lastly, the whole exercise would not have been possible without the financial
support from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) through the 5th and 6th
Country Programme of Assistance.

Its the efforts of all those above that the district now have a blueprint for
reference while implementing the National Population Policy for Sustainable
Development over the next five years. The challenge therefore remains with the
implementers to actualize the contents and accomplish the objectives of the
Policy.

iv
Foreword

This District Specific Strategic Plan is a localization of the National Plan of Action
(NPA) for the implementation of the National Population Policy for Sustainable
Development (NPPSD) contained in Sessional Paper No. 1 of 2000.

The Plan was prepared by key representatives, in the Population and Health
Sectors from the various Ministries, Non-governmental Organizations, Religious
Organizations and other stakeholders in the district. This exercise was
coordinated by District Population Officer (DPO) assisted by members of the
District Development Committee (DDC).

The Plan preparation involved addressing all the critical issues as identified in the
NPPSD, pinpointing problems associated with each issue and prioritizing them
according to the needs of the district. These issues include: Population and
Development; Gender Perspectives; Reproductive Health (RH); and,
STI/HIV/AIDS. In this regard, the stakeholders proposed the activities that need
to be undertaken to address the identified issues/problems in a draft plan. The
draft plan was then discussed with the members of the District Executive
Committee (DEC) and approved by the DDC.

The Logical framework matrix approach was used to develop the indicators for
the identified activities that will be used to monitor and evaluate the
implementation of the Plan. As noted in the NPPSD, the successful undertaking
of this task calls for joint effort, hard work and dedication from all stakeholders in
the district

KERICHO DISTRICT STRATEGIC PLAN 2005-2010

CHAPTER 1 BACKGROUND

The National Population Policy for Sustainable Development (NPPSD) was


officially adopted by Parliament in May 2000. The policy supercedes the 1984
Sessional Paper No. 4 on population policy guidelines. The policy, apart from
building on the achievements of the Population Policy Guidelines also addresses
new and emerging issues like HIV/AIDS, Gender, the Youth, the elderly, persons
with disabilities and the environment.

The NPPSD outlines a wide range of strategies and actions that need to be
undertaken to meet the set goals, objectives and targets through a multi sectoral
and multi dimensional integrated approach involving all stakeholders in the
population and health sector.

1.1. Justification Of The District Specific Strategic Plan.

In order to implement the NPPSD, it was found necessary to develop the


National Plan of Action (NPA). The NPA gives direction to implementing
agencies and donors on the needs of the population and how to monitor and
evaluate on-going population projects and programmes.

The NPA is a document that spells out the activities to implement the NPPSD for
the whole country. However, given the regional differentials, it was of necessity
to develop District Strategic Plans to address specific population and
development needs of various districts. Each district has peculiar problems and
hence mechanisms to address these identified problems and needs should be
different.

1.2. Methodology

The District Specific Strategic Plan (DSSP) for Kericho District was developed
through consensus building. First, a workshop was held for key persons in the
Implementation
of the NationalPopulationPolicyfor SustainableDevelopment

District to come up with the content and format of the plan. Attending this
workshop were officers from the Ministry of Finance and Planning (DDO, DSO,
DPO) and Ministry of Health (MOH, DPHN). It was agreed that the DSSP should
address all the central issues identified in the NPPSD and use the NPA to
develop the District implementation plan. The log frame approach was then used
to develop monitoring and evaluation indicators for the identified activities.

The second step was to organize a workshop for four Districts (Kericho, Buret,
Bomet and Transmara Districts) in Kericho. The workshop drew participants from
all the key stakeholders in the population and health sector to develop the DSSP
of their respective districts. Background documents provided to the participants
included the NPPSD, NPA, District Development Plans and RH strategy. During
the workshop, presentations were made on the NPPSD, NPA, SWOT Analysis,
Strategic Planning and monitoring Evaluation.

The participants then formed district teams and undertook SWOT Analysis of the
existing implementers of the population and health programmes and projects in
their respective districts.

Later, the teams identified priority problems/issues that need to be addressed by


various implementers of programmes. Activities to be undertaken to address the
identified issues were then agreed upon by the workshop. The NCPD
secretariat, using the workshop outputs, later prepared a draft of DSSP details of
which are attached.

1.3 Organization Of The District Strategic Plan

This chapter provides the background to the District Strategic Plan, namely – the
rationale for the plan and the methodology used. Chapter two details on the
District profile. The next four chapters will focus on broad themes of the Strategic
Plan i.e. Population and Development, Gender Perspectives, Reproductive
Health and HIV/AIDS. The last two chapters focus on evaluation and monitoring
of the activities, conclusion and way forward.

From the 1999 Population and Housing Census, the district population is
projected to be 503,468. The average density is 238.5km‚. Out of the seven
divisions of the district, Ainamoi is the most densely populated with
430.2km‚.Soin Division is the least densely populated with 96.2 people per km‚as
shown on the above table.

2.1. Demographic And Population Profile

The population of the district increased from 366,913 in 1989 to 468,493 in 1999,
giving an absolute increase of 27.7% and a growth rate of 2.4% per annum over
the intercensal period. Table 2 shows the district’s demographic indicators while
table 3 shows the population projections of the district by age cohorts and sex
over the plan period.

The population is projected to increase from 503,468 in year 2002 to 581,448 in


year 2008. The population of the district is predominantly youth with about 57% of
the total population falling below 20 years of age and 76% of the population
below 30 years of age. The high percentage of youth poses a challenge of
providing adequate educational facilities and services and creating adequate
employment opportunities for those who finish school.

The number of people in each group has been steadily increasing. This is due to
a controlled morbidity structure and improved health standards that have cut
down mortality rates and reduced mortality levels.

2.2. Welfare Indicators

2.2.1 Education

The population of primary going children is expected to increase from 117,777 in


year 2002 to 136,018 in year 2008. This represents an increase of 18,241 over
the plan period. This increase calls for more investment in primary schools,
trained teachers and technical institutions to cater for the primary school leavers.

The secondary school going age is also expected to increase from 51,838 in year
2002 to 59,867 persons in year 2008. This represents an increase of 8,029
persons. This group will require to be provided with educational facilities and
services.

2.2.2 Labour Force

The district had a total labour force of 261,708 in year 2002. The labour force is
176,033 and is projected to increase to 301,537 in year 2008. Majority of the

Kericho DistrictStrategicPlan2005-2010 6
Implementation
of the NationalPopulationPolicyfor SustainableDevelopment

labour force are males. About 48% of the labour force has attained over 8 years
of formal education 30% works for pay while the rest are either unemployed or
are unpaid workers in family business.

The income of the district is basically derived from sales of agricultural products.
Tea, coffee, pyrethrum, maize, beans Irish potatoes and milk products are the
mainstays of the district. Thus the family incomes generally are from these two
sources.

2.2.3 Poverty Analysis

People living below poverty line in Kericho represent close to 60% of the total
population. The most affected categories include unemployed youth, women and
female-headed households, disabled, slum dwellers, the landless, the aged and
street families/children.

The poor are scattered all over the district but most of them are in the urban
areas. Due to poverty, negative social behaviour is on the increase in the district.
These include petty crimes, child labour, prostitution, and alcoholism and family
breakages among others. As a result of poverty the district is now experiencing
an increase in school drop out rates, access to health is becoming difficult,
people are succumbing to HIV/AIDs etc.

The major causes of poverty in the district include large families, lack of skills for
self-employment/paid employment, landlessness, and the poor infrastructure
hampering access to markets, lack of affordable credit facilities, and high cost of
basic social services.

2.2.4 Health

Kericho District has 18 government health facilities that are spread all over the
district. The doctor to patient ratio is 1:15,00 and 40% of the households have
access to health facility with an average of 15 kilometres to the nearest health
facility

The most prevalent diseases in the district are upper respiratory tract infection
(URTI), Malaria, and skin infections. Thus programmes of Primary Health Care
(PHC); and STI/STD including HIV/AIDS should be put in place. Diseases of the
skin including ulcers are the third after malaria and URTI.

HIV/AIDs pandemic is not only a health problem but also a development issue as
it encompasses socio-economic and cultural dimensions. In Kericho, HIV/AIDs is
spreading rapidly and if not checked will affect development of the district. Due to
the increasing number of HIV/AIDS patient’s consequent deaths has impacted
negatively on the district economy. If preventive measures are not pursued more
aggressively and people are not sensitized on the need to change their sex
behaviours then many people will become infected. Table 5 below summaries

CHAPTER 3: POPULATION AND DEVELOPMENT

The population of Kericho District that stands at 503,468 has a growth rate of
2.96% p.a. The effect of this growth rate include increased unemployment, high
dependency ratio, increased demand for health services, high demand for
agricultural land, more need for fuel and forest products, over-crowding in
educational facilities, more demand for better housing, high levels in poverty
indices.

However, there has been a markedly positive effect on the people. Primary
health care has led to the improved survival of general population leading to
increase in people and Life expectancy, increase in child survival, lower infant
and childhood deaths. Literacy levels seem higher among the boys as evidenced
by high enrolment and retention rates at all levels.

3.1 Main Issues/Problems In The District

The main issues/problems concerning population and development in the district


include the following are:

(i) Integration of population issues into development planning. The


issue here is weak integration of population concerns into development
planning mainly due ti lack of DIDCs.

(ii) Population and environment. The problem of environmental degradation


has been caused by scarcity of land and high population growth, which
has then put pressure on available land. The water catchment areas are
being encroached by the landless and this might result to desertification.
Cultivation along the water catchment area and excavation of murram on
hillsides will cause degradation through soil erosion.

(iii) Children and Youth. The main problems affecting children and youth
include abuse of children’s rights, child labour while other essential basic

Kericho DistrictStrategicPlan2005-2010 10
Implementation
of the NationalPopulationPolicyfor SustainableDevelopment

services are not provided. Children have no rights to protection, whereas


the number of orphans is on the increase. Other problems facing the youth
include unemployment, school drop out and inaccessibility to quality
education and training information.

(iv) Family. Divorce, poverty, alcoholism and violence are the major problems
affecting families in Kericho District.

The elderly and persons with disabilities (PWDs). The elderly are faced with
problems that include lack of basic needs such as food, medicine, shelter and
clothing. Problems facing people with disabilities are low involvement in socio-
cultural and economic issues, lack of forums or organizations to represent PWD
and their views.

3.2. Analysis Of Instutions Involved In Population Programmes

In Kericho District, the following institutions/NGOs/CBOs/Ministries were


identified as best suited to undertake programmes to address the population and
development issues raised above; Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Planning,
Department of Culture & Social Services, Ministry of Education, Science and
Technology, Ministry of Environment & Natural Resources, Religious
Organizations and NGOs.

The table below outlines the results of the SWOT analysis by each main
issue/problem.

CHAPTER 4: GENDER PERSPECTIVES IN


DEVELOPMENT

Gender can be defined as being a male or female and translated into the
opportunities enjoyed by either of the two sexes as prescribed by the societal
values and norms. The society has put restrictions on these opportunities thus
causing disparities between males and females. In Kericho District, the following
issues related to gender issues were identified.

4.1. Main Issues/Problems

 There exist inadequate participation and representation of women at all levels


of decision making in development matters

 There exists profound gender disparities in Land and provision of education


and attainment of education at all levels of schooling

 Lack of awareness and understanding of gender issues

 Harmful cultural practices

4.2 Analysis Of Institutions Dealing With Gender Concerns.

Institutions to implement Gender issues were identified; these were, Ministry of


Home Affairs, Heritage and Sports (Women Bureau), office of the president, and
Maendeleo Ya Wanawake Organization (MYWO). A SWOT analysis of the above
institutions identified as best suited to address gender concerns in the district
revealed the following:

CHAPTER 5: REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH

Reproductive Health (RH) as defined by World Health Organization (WHO), is


generally a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being in all matters
related to the RH system, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. RH
care system is therefore inclusive of all promotive, preventive and curative
services that will be conducive to the well being of the individual in human
reproduction and sexuality. In Kericho District different aspects of reproductive
health services are inadequate and are listed below.

5.1 Issues/Problems Related To Reproductive Health (RH)

Although Kericho District has 15 Government facilities distributed all over the
district, most of them are under utilized and the district has various issues related
to RH. These include:

 High incidences of teenage pregnancies

 Unequipped health care facilities for quality maternal services

 High incidences of early marriages

 Prevalent abortion cases

 High incidences of STI/HIV/AIDS

5.2 Analysis Of Institutions Dealing With RH Issues

In the district, Ministry of Health (MOH), Office of the President (OP), NGOs and
Religious Organizations were identified as potential institutions that can address
all issues related to reproductive health. Their SWOT analysis is follows:

5.3 Proposed Programme (Outputs)

To address these issues raised in the district, various out-puts have been
suggested in this District Plan of Action, they are:

 Un-planned pregnancy among the youths reduced

 Programme and Resource Management improved.

 Access and utilization of appropriate RH Information and Services by


youths and adolescent increased

 Harmful RH practices in the district reduced

 Accessing and utilizing of quality and cost effective MCH Services


increased

For each of these out-puts, various and numerous activities have been
suggested. Details of planned activities and implementation Plan for RH is
attached in Annex III.

Implementation

CHAPTER 6: STI/HIV/AIDS

One of the RH concerns that have continued to affect a large population of


Kenyans in their reproductive ages is STI/HIV/AIDS. In Kericho District HIV
prevalence is of great concern. Unless the spread of HIV/AIDs is checked the
district faces an imminent disaster. The culture beliefs and poverty in the
community are some of the major factors that have contributed to the rise in
infection rate in the district. The issue/problems that require urgent attention
include: -

6.1 Main Issues/Problems

Issues/problems that require urgent and concerted efforts in the district are:

 High incidence of STDs and HIV/AIDS

 Slow behavioural change

 Inadequate care and support for orphans

6.2. Analysis Of Institutions That Deals With Hiv /Aids Issues

The Ministry of Health, NACC, OP, NGOs (YWCA, KESPA) and religious
organizations (ACK) were identified as major institutions that can spearhead the
fight against HIV/AIDs. A SWOT analysis of MOH/NCC as the main institutions
dealing with HIV/AIDs revealed the following:

6.3 Proposed Programmes (Outputs)

To address the main issues/problems affecting Kericho District, the following


broad outputs were identified as very important:

 Reduced incidence of HIV/AIDs/STI infections

 Promote behaviour change

 Promote use of condoms

 Establish support and care for the infected and affected with HIV/AIDS

To achieve the above outputs, a number of activities have been proposed. These
are well articulated by the Matrices in Annex IV that also outlines the proposed
implementation Plan of Action.

CHAPTER 7: MONITORING AND EVALUATION

Monitoring and Evaluation will provide a wealth of information derived from the
project staff and beneficiaries. The information gathered will be analyzed and be
used to improve the quality of programme implementation at every stage.

7.1 Monitoring

Monitoring will be in all the projects and will be done regularly to ensure that
activities are being carried out as planned. If there will be any hindrances to the
implementation of the activities this regular monitoring will assist in identifying
and getting solutions for them.

Different agencies already have their own ways of monitoring, but during the
implementation of the DPA, these will be agreed upon depending on the activities
agreed upon. This will be at different levels, because different agencies already
report to their District Headquarters, Provincial Headquarters and others direct to
their National Office.

The following will be some of the ways that will be applied:

a) Quarterly Meetings: There will be Quarterly Meetings by the


stakeholders to review the progress made in the planned quarter. At the
district level there are already District Meetings e.g. DEC, DDC, DHMT,
DP&HC.

b) Quarterly Reports: These will be produced quarterly with a format to be


agreed upon by all the stakeholders. They will serve as a checklist of all
that was planned to be accomplished in the given quarter. What has
actually been carried out and what has not and reason for not
accomplishing the activities.

c) Annual Reports: These will monitor progress of the programme per given
year.

Kericho DistrictStrategicPlan2005-2010 22
Implementation
of the NationalPopulationPolicyfor SustainableDevelopment

d) Field Visits: a team to be agreed upon by the stakeholders will do these.


They will state what the team is to check, observe as they do their field
visits.

The reports prepared from all the above will be forwarded to a higher level and
feedback will be given so that action can be effected.

The reports are to be checked against the programme work plans so that
progress is monitored alongside what was planned to be achieved.

7.2 Evaluation

Evaluation will be used to assess the relevance, the impact and success of the
programme. The DPA will utilize the National sampled surveys (KDHS and
KSPA) to evaluate their programmes. The individual projects will do their own
internal and external evaluation.

The results will be used to modify the planned activities or to recommend for
extension of the programmes.

Depending on which type of evaluation is used the monitoring reports will serve
as an input to the evaluation process.

The Monitoring and Evaluation framework for the planned activities are shown in
