The Coronavirus pandemic is the defining global health crisis of our time. Since its emergence late last year, the virus has spread to every continent except Antarctica. Cases are rising daily in Africa and South America, and Europe has taken over as the epicentre of the disease and more cases are now being reported every day than in China at the height of its epidemic.
It’s important now more than ever to make sure that accurate messaging is reaching the people, going beyond the screens to the families and individuals.
UNDP procured and handed over to the Government of Kenya, waste management equipment to be deployed at 13 pilot health centers across 4 Counties.
As part of the United Nations response to the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic in Kenya, an agreement has been reached with partners on the UNDP-led Consolidating Gains and Deepening Devolution in Kenya project to remobilize $3.1m of funds towards rapid measures to mitigate the impact and spread of the virus, which have been formulated in line with the COVID-19 Contingent Plan developed by the Government of Kenya.
UNDP has partnered to build a system where the Kakamega community can benefit from the mondia plant – their genetic heritage – in a sustainable way that also protects Kakamega Forest.
Technical and Vocational Training (TVET) is one of the approaches Kenya is using to provide alternative opportunities for skills and knowledge transfer where youth can become more competitive.
Among people with disabilities (PWDs), studies have indicated that special education is often lacking and that injustices suffered by PWDs can be missed by the legal system.
