Dataset: Evaluation of the impact of removal of user fees for maternal health services on universal health coverage in Kenya
This study built on similar previous studies focusing on healthcare financing conducted by the Population Council in collaboration with the Government of Kenya and other partners. The current study used a mixed-methods approach. The qualitative component involved targeted interviews to identify the process and complexities of implementing the user fee removal policy and to better understand the factors that influence women to seek facility-based deliveries with and without user fees. The quantitative component involved a large household survey. A total of 25 policymakers, stakeholders, and facility in-charges were invited for interview and 25 focus groups were held with voucher and non-voucher clients.
