Kenya Life Expectancy

Life expectancy in Kenya: Kenya’s life expectancy, a crucial measure of the length of life that children born today can live based on current death rates, has shot up. This is a pointer that the quality of life in the country is improving, perhaps helped by development programmes such as stipends for older people and the distribution of wealth through the Constituency Development Fund.

Population experts have often predicted the rise in life expectancy following sustained government spending on poverty alleviation programmes, improved health services and successes in treatment of people living with HIV/Aids.
