Description: To achieve universal health coverage, the Government of Kenya (GoK) intends to implement social health protection schemes, which will include the subsidy of the poorest of society. Within this framework, the identification of the poor, so called
targeting, is a crucial element.
This study analysed and compared a Community Based Targeting (CBT) mechanism and a Proxy Means Test (PMT) mechanism currently used in the context of two health programs supported by German Development Cooperation (GDC) in Kenya.
The mechanisms were assessed in regard to their effectiveness of implementation, perceivedaccuracy, costs and acceptance. The study thereby aimed at providing
evidence on the applicabilityof those mechanisms for the Kenyan context and more generally at contributing to the discussion about targeting effectiveness in lowincome
settings.
