Abstract: Background: Despite the globally acclaimed efficacy of the ICD-10 as a tool for disease classification, existing evidence focus on quality of disease coding outcomes with limited evidence on determinants of utilization. The starting point to sustaining the quality of disease coding is establishing its utilization and its determinants. There is paucity of evidence on role of health professional factors on use of ICD systems in Kenya.
