Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of distributive justice perceptions on organizational commitment of employees working with Health Non-Governmental Organizations in Kenya. The study adopted descriptive and correlational research designs with a statistical sample of 195 employees responsible for key result areas in 17 health sector non-governmental organizations. Data was collected using a structured questionnaire. Distributive justice perceptions were measured using Colquitts model while organizational commitment was measured through Meyers three component model comprising of affective, continuance and normative commitment. Survey data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics with the aid of IBM Statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) version 20 for descriptive statistics and factor analysis and Stata version 12.0 for hypotheses testing using ordered logistic regression technique. Qualitative data was analyzed through the use of questionnaires. Results of the study show a low positive significant relationship between distributive justice perceptions and affective commitment (Pseudo R2 = 0.0388) and normative commitment (Pseudo R2 = 0.0593). The study recommends that Health NGOs promote just work practices in order to benefit more from a committed workforce.
