The UN is supporting efforts to:
- Establish mechanisms for sustainable financing and commodity security for the HIV response
- Increase capacity to scale up evidence-based policies and programmes for the HIV response
- Strengthen national and county leadership, coordination, generation and utilization of strategic information
Women and girls in Kenya are more likely to contract HIV. Pervasive gender inequalities, early marriages, gender-based violence, discrimination and patriarchy are just a few of the contributing factors to the increased vulnerability of women and girls.
By taking a multi-pronged approach to the HIV response in Kenya, the UN in partnership with government, NGOs, CSOs and other stakeholders can address these issues.
