Case study of kenyan coast

Case study of Kenyan Coast

  • Challenge to prevention: Religious demonstration against meeting on KPs;

  • Action Taken: Multi-level stakeholder engagement through TWG and community mobilization

  • Key strategy: framing KP access to prevention service as health right; prevention for all; and religious obligation ‘as thy brother’s keeper’; .

  • Result: increased service provision to KP; and KP participation and ownership of prevention initiatives.


Discussion highlights

DISCUSSION HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Mobilizing public involvement

  • Establishment of technical working groups

  • Media involvement and publicity

  • State and local administration buy-in and involvement

  • Integrated service provision- each service provider finding niche

  • KP-led advocacy for involvement


Summary

Summary

  • Whereas programming interests may mainly focus on the provision of services to KAP; an enabling environment is extremely essential.

  • This can be assured by leadership by government agencies through TWG’S to ensure that there are requisite policies, guidelines and direction for implementation of sound interventions.
