Kenya Household Health Expenditure and Utilization Survey (KHHEUS)

August 3rd, 2020

The KHHEUS is a national household survey that explores health seeking behavior, the utilization of health services, health spending, and health insurance coverage amongst Kenyan households. The survey has been conducted three times so far; specifically in 2003, 2007 and 2013. The 2013 round of the survey was conducted by MOH in conjunction with Kenya National Bureau of Statistics, with support from the Health Policy Project funded by the United States Agency for International Development. Unlike the previous two rounds, the 2013 KHHEUS, with a sample size of close to 34,000 households, is representative at the county level in addition to providing national estimates for key indicators related to healthcare utilization and spending.

Main findings and additional information from the survey are available in a report available on the Health Policy Project website:
