Mainstreaming gender within health institutions at national and county level throughout the country by strengthening capacities as well as targeting men as agents of change to promote health seeking behaviour among pregnant women, availing information to the women and girls in the community and training health care workers to ensure all women and girls can access affordable and efficient health care.
