- Universal Health Care (Makueni Care) Provision of promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health services of good quality at an affordable cost. The program seeks to reduce household expenditure on healthcare, increase ANC visits by pregnant mothers, increase births attended to by skilled personnel and increase contraceptive acceptance by ensuring 80% of households are enrolled.
- County technical training Upgrading: The labour market currently faces an acute demand for skilled and semi-skilled labour in order to cope with the rapid pace of technology advancement. Revamping and remodeling of county technical training institutes is intended to improve the quality of provision and learning outcomes to make it more accessible and attractive to all. It will also ensure that the training offered is relevant and connected to the labour market.
Fashion of “Huduma Centre”
Establish service delivery centres (Mwene Nthi Centres) that will provide a one-stop center for public administration and other devolved function/services for the citizenry.

How was Makueni County CIDP 2013- 2017 financed?
A total of Ksh. 30.6 billion was budgeted for the implementation of Makueni County CIDP 2018-2022. During the period Makueni County raised Ksh. 1.1 billion from Own Sources of Revenues and received Ksh. 28.7 billion as equitable share.
A total of Ksh. 22.7 billion was spent by the county during the period 2017-2022. The largest amount was spent on health at Ksh. 7.3 billion followed closely by the Public Administration and International Affairs at Ksh. 6.8 billion.
Resource Requirements for CIDP 2018-2022
A total of Ksh. 82.5 billion will be needed in order to implement projects and programmes in the Makueni CIDP 2018-2022.
Health Sector will require the lion’s share at Ksh. 22.7 billion or 28% of the total budget followed closely Ksh. 18.3 billion for Environment Protection, Water and Natural Resources sector and the top three is crowned by Energy, Infrastructure and ICT at Ksh. 17.1 billion or 21% of the entire five-year budget.
A total of Ksh. 45.9 billion or 56% of the total resources are expected to be received from the National Government in the form of Equitable Share. Own Source of Revenue is expected to contribute Ksh. 3.7 billion or 5% of the total resource requirement while Conditional grants will contribute Ksh. 2.5 billion of 3% of the resources required while the balance of Ksh.30.3 billion will be the resource gap representing 37% of the total resource requirements.
Makueni County expects to bridge the revenue gap through use of various strategies such as engaging in Public Private Partnerships (PPPs); borrowing loans and receive grants from development partners.
We will see Makueni County increasingly engaging donors to support in bridging the resource gap. This will call for superior resource mobilization skills from the county employees especially those working under the county treasury. However, I believe that all sector heads should strive to attract donor attention in order to bridge the identified gap of Ksh. 30 billion.
