Introduction (Context and Challenge):
Vihiga County was experiencing unequal development across the wards owing to the absence of a County-level formula to distribute resources. It was, thus, difficult to objectively determine gaps in each sector without favouring a particular area. Unequal distribution of resources rendered some areas less developed than others, affecting all Vihiga County residents. Due to skewed development, there was unequal service delivery, as facilities were mainly concentrated in a few areas. For example, in health, mothers in labour would die because of not being able to get to the hospital on time.
