Subnational estimates of factors associated with under-five mortality in Kenya

Ranking of factors associated with child survival in 2014 from low intervention coverage or high disease prevalence (red) to high intervention coverage or low disease prevalence (green).
A subset of 3 factors associated with child survival including health facility delivery, malaria infection prevalence and three doses of diphtheria–tetanus–pertussis (DPT) vaccine.

We gathered rich insights into child survival in Kenya by mapping patterns over 22 years. We set out to explore disparities and inequities by estimating the coverage and prevalence of 43 determinants. This we did for each of Kenya’s 47 counties every year between 1993 and 2014. These studies give granular insights into the situation in regions across Kenya. Between them the studies show which regions have insufficient coverage of critical health interventions, which regions have high disease infection rates, and what factors have the greatest impact on child survival.
