Abstract

The study was conducted aiming at assessing the sustainability of the national CBHS programme, with specific objectives of, (i) identifying main factors affecting sustainability of the national CBHS programme and (ii) how the partnership arrangements with the health sector affect sustainability of CBHS. A cross sectional research design was adopted with two data collection methods, primary data collection methods and secondary data collection methods. A sample size of 89 respondents were selected purposively, conveniently, and randomly selected from TRCS, CHMTs, WHCs and PLHIVs. Content data analysis with the aid of Nvivo software for qualitative data was done and cross tabulation using SPSS to develop frequency tables and Chi-square test for quantitative data was also done. The study results show that; availability of supportive policies and procedures, health systems, community engagement and empowerment, participatory M&E, and funding predictability, affect sustainability of the national CBHS programme. The findings also show that, partnership arrangements in various ways affect sustainability of the national CBHS programme. It is recommended that, to ensure sustainability of the national CBHS programme, the community should be and empowered to implement the programme, programmes systems should be integrated with available health and administrative systems, participatory M&E should be adopted, and sustainability strategies should be put in place.
