Scaling Up Community Led Monitoring Towards a Hiv Free Kenya

Nairobi Tuesday October 31, 2013 Kenya's fight against HIV has seen remarkable milestones over the years with the number of individuals on lifelong anti-retroviral treatment  nearly doubling  in the last decade, leading to an impressive 89% viral suppression rate among those on treatment.

Additionally, Kenya stands as the second African nation to successfully implement a Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) program for HIV prevention, with a 64% uptake among eligible individuals. 

To build on and and sustain these gains, we  are building strong public health systems anchored  on Community-Led Processes to enhance social accountability and improve healthcare quality and accessibility. 

We are creating Primary Healthcare Networks (PCNs) with the goal of increasing citizen engagement in monitoring. Additionally, the recent deployment of 100,000 equipped Community Health Promoters will strengthen community involvement.

The Ministry of Health, UNAIDS,Council of Governors, PEPFAR,Kenya Red Cross, Amref Health Africa among other stakeholders are currently  meeting to design a  unified approach for a  sustainable patient centric systems for HIV prevention and curative services.
