RMC researchers have completed an annual research memo on the impact of Nuru Kenya’s Healthcare intervention. In 2020, Nuru Kenya’s Healthcare intervention reached 1,659 households including 9,954 individuals with a health behavior change approach. This intervention was delivered as part of an integrated rural service delivery portfolio including livelihoods, financial inclusion, dairy, and farmer cooperative activities. Using the Lives Saved Tool (LiST), researchers found that the intervention achieved a 24% reduction in under-five child mortality. In total, 20 lives were saved. The cost per person per year was $4.84 for these services. The cost per life saved was $2,433. These intervention activities were delivered and the impact was achieved amidst the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
