1.0. Background: The Health NGO Network (HENNET) was founded in 2005 to fill a long standing gap within the health sector in terms of coordination, and networking among health related Civil Society Organizations(CSOs).
HENNET was founded as a result of a felt need to set up a forum for CSOs dealing with health issues for purposes of collaboration, sharing of experiences and advocacy.
HENNET brings together different health oriented CSOs, with diverse interests, but all having a common vision of a “Healthy Kenyan Society”.
Currently HENNET is implementing a project in Kisumu and Nairobi, aimed at establishing the Social Accountability for Health.
The project is funded by AMREF Health Africa, Kenya.
The goal of this project is to help achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in Kenya by working with partners to enhance the voices of citizens to improve government and health care policies, resources, and practices.
Among these partners we have the CSOs.
