In Kenya, PACE uses innovative, strategic approaches to ensure that family planning, reproductive health, and population issues are included in Kenya’s policies and programs as a key to Kenya’s achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and Vision 2030.
PACE works with partner organizations in-country to produce effective communication materials on a broad range of subjects.
The PACE Project, in collaboration with Kenya’s National Council for Population and Development (NCPD), produced a data sheet with findings from the 2014 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS). The data sheet includes figures that explain national data for married women ages 15 to 49 on the demand for contraception that was satisfied, use of or intention to use contraception, and the most popular sources of contraception.
“Integrating Population, Health, and Environment for Sustainable Development in Kenya” is a new ENGAGE presentation that serves as an advocacy tool to promote integrated population, health, and environment (PHE) approaches, and the value of family planning/reproductive health (FP/RH) investments by decisionmakers in health and nonhealth sectors, such as natural resource management and conservation.
PACE builds the capacity of individuals and institutions in Kenya—so that more people understand and can champion evidence about how family planning and reproductive health will contribute to long-term development and more institutions are mobilized and impactful.
Policy dialogues and events take a multisectoral approach, inspiring communication between sectors and breaking down silos.
