Child Survival

Although the infant and child mortality rates
have improved from 60 to 52/1000 and 92 to 74/1000 respectively
between 2003 and 2008 (Kenya Demographic Health Survey, 2009),
Kenya is far from attaining its MDG targets of 25/1000 and 33/1000
by 2015.
KRCS has for many years engaged interventions geared towards
increasing immunisation coverage, diarrhoeal disease prevention
through sanitation and hygiene promotion, nutrition education
and supplementation in ASAL areas. Key strategies included
integrated medical outreaches, social-mobilization, immunisation
and micronutrient supplementation campaigns and up scaling
malaria prevention including HMM. KRCS’ 2012 focus is enhancing
health literacy through ACSM, support acceleration of high impact
interventions and improve access to child health services.
