DFID’s MNH programme currently funds MSI/Options to implement MNH programming in Bungoma county under the MANI project, through a health systems strengthening approach that address both supply and demand side barriers.
- At the county and sub-county levels, MANI supports efforts to improve leadership and governance, planning and budgeting, HRH, health care financing, procurement and supply chain management, and HMIS.
