An Exploration of Home-Based Care Program as a Strategy to Manage Covid-19 Cases in Kenya
The rapid spread of the Covid-19 infections across the globe has compelled the Kenyan government to ensure that the disease is not only managed, but also contained. The impact of the disease on health facilities is immense. One of the most common policy responses has been the integration of home-based care and treatment as a way of decongesting hospitals. The Kenyan government came up with this proposal at a time when the health facilities were outstretched. There exists scant literature on the issue of home-based care on Covid-19 patients, especially in the developing countries. This study therefore sought to not only assess the available models, components, practices and benefits of home-based care, especially in the management of Covid-19, but it also sought to identify possible challenges that could face this program and recommended solutions to these challenges.
