The objective of this study was to explain the persistently high fertility in North Eastern region of Kenya. Total fertility rate (TFR) in this region has been on the rise as fertility falls in the rest of the country. For example, TFR was 5.9 and 6.4 births per woman during the Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS) of 2008/09 and 2013/14 respectively against the national TFR of 4.6 and 3.4 during the KDHS of 2008/09 and 2013/14 respectively. The government target of 2.6 children per woman by 2030 cannot be realized if fertility continues to increase in this region.

This study focused on assessing data quality and information use of Karurumo Community Health Unit (CHU) data collected through the Community Health Information System (CHIS), for the period September to November 2014. The assessment focused on three dimensions of data quality: completeness accuracy; and timeliness. Use of information was assessed based on: dialogue, action, feedback, referral, sharing and advocacy. Data was obtained from the CHIS data collection tools as well as from the District Health Information Software (DHIS2).

The overall objective of the assessment was to determine the status of the FHOK M&E system and its contribution to the improvements of the programme. Specifically, the assessment was aimed at: determining the extent to which the FHOK M&E system meets the established standards; identifying strengths and gaps of FHOK M&E system; and determining how the products of FHOK M&E system have been used to improve the programme.
