Promoting global health ensures progress in basic humanitarian values in saving and improving lives. In recent years, improving global health has proven its advanced value in promoting security and constructive cooperation between countries. A strategic and long-term global health policy helps countries in advancing their core interests in establishing lasting collaborations that save and improve lives of millions globally. This policy helps in creating an environment that enables countries to possess their goals and programs where assessment, cost-effectiveness, and responsibility assume imperative roles. Health challenges are more acute in sub-Saharan Africa compared to other developed nations. These challenges are embedded in a broader context of poverty, poorly developed infrastructure, politically instigated conflicts and disappointingly managed governmental institutions. The sub-Saharan Africa region remains a target of global public health policies and intercessions. Fighting against AIDS, TB, and Malaria, for example, has, in the last decade, spurred an exceptional mobilization of resources to Africa. The Kenya health policies give directions to ensure considerable developments in the position of health in the country. Accordingly, these guidelines are aligned with the country’s development agenda, Vision 2030, the new constitution, and global commitments. Under the government’s supervision, the health policies show the ministry of health’s commitment to guaranteeing highest possible standards of health in Kenya. Maintaining the commitment and dedicated programs towards global, regional, and local health should remain consistent even in the face of momentous fiscal situations and commitments from other valuable global priorities.
