The Kenyan Health Sector has been playing a critical role in providing health care services in response to the population needs in line with the Kenya Health Policy, 2014-2030’s goal of attaining the highest possible health standards in a manner responsive to the population needs. Overall, the Health Sector strategic focus guided by the Country’s blueprint, Vision 2030 and the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.
The guidelines herein aim to provide health workers with information, procedures and tools required to
ensure regular and reliable supply of HPTs, their appropriate storage, control and issuing.
There are four HPT guidelines that constitue HPT Management. These are:
- Guidelines on Management of Health Products and Technologies in Kenya (October 2020)
- Quantification Handbook For Health Products And Technologies (October 2020)
- Guidelines For The Establishment and Operationalization of Medicines and Therapeautics Committees(October 2020)

Utilization and implementation of these Guidelines at the County and Institutional levels will go a long way in ensuring more appropriate and cost effective use of medicines and subsequently enhance the quality of health care delivery especially as we fully implement Universal Health Coverage in Kenya.
