Gendered gaps to tuberculosis prevention and care in Kenya: a political economy analysis study
25 May 2024

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a public health concern in Kenya despite the massive global efforts towards ending TB. The impediments to TB prevention and care efforts include poor health systems, resource limitations and other sociopolitical contexts that inform policy and implementation. Notably, TB cases are much higher in men than women. Therefore, the political economy analysis (PEA) study provides in-depth contexts and understanding of the gender gaps to access and successful treatment for TB infection.

Following the development of effective TB policies and strategies, it is essential to have well planned gendered responsive interventions with a clear implementation plan and monitoring system to enhance access to TB prevention and care.
