Abstract
Devolution Act and Implementation Guidelines stress the need of assessing the progress of health facilities built with county funds. In Counties, the many parties accountable for project delivery are also tasked with monitoring its progress. In order to produce an accurate assessment of a project, individuals tasked with monitoring and assessing it must ask the correct questions, conduct thorough investigations of the actual problems, and gather all necessary data. Managers of public works projects are always pleased when their efforts succeed. This means completing the project on schedule and without going over budget, as well as satisfying the entire project's other stakeholders. Despite best efforts, numerous Kilifi County health building projects financed by the county have ran over budget, behind schedule, failed to meet end-product standards, failed to meet customer wants and expectations, and failed to achieve management objectives. For effective tracking and measurement of results, as well as illumination of the triggers to difficulties inherent in handling county-funded health construction projects, effective evaluation and monitoring techniques are essential. This project aimed to examine the correlation between evaluation methods with effectiveness of health infrastructure initiatives financed by the public in Kilifi County. The research focused on how elements such as stakeholder participation, budget distribution, project management skills, and assessment techniques impact the effectiveness of healthcare initiatives sponsored by the county in Kilifi County. The investigation was grounded in theories such as stakeholder, resource-based perspective, equity, and program. A crosssectional research approach was employed, concentrating on 29 county-funded health initiatives in Kilifi County. The subset of initiatives from which data was gathered was chosen using a straightforward random sampling strategy. Information was gathered through a semi-structured questionnaire. The gathered quantitative information was processed and examined using SPSS version 21. Data analysis utilized both quantitative and qualitative strategies. Descriptive and inferential statistics were adopted for data interpretation.
