How can you make a difference? Background Kenya did not meet the MDG targets for sanitation or drinking water. The WHO-UNICEF MDG Assessment concluded that while â€œgood progressâ€?
while for basic sanitation access is just 29%. These national access figures, however, obscure the widespread inequalities across social and economic divides.
The lack of access to safe and sustainable drinking water and sanitation among the poorest and most marginalised children puts them at constant risk of diarrhoeal disease and malnutrition.
Since 2014 Kenya has experienced continues outbreaks of cholera affecting 31 counties. Between January and September 2017 there were 2,700 reported cases in 18 counties, clearly indicative of the poor sanitary conditions, hygiene practices and inadequate water supply.
Moreover, the failure to quickly bring cholera outbreaks under control suggests ineffective cross-sectoral coordination (water, sanitation, health) at both national and county government level.
The UNICEF Kenya WASH programme aims to reduce inequalities in access to drinking water and sanitation, prioritising the unserved and most disadvantaged communities.
It supports the agenda of the Third Medium Term Plan 2018-2022 and works closely with county governments to allocate budgets and improve the efficacy and efficiency of service delivery.
It continues to respond to the challenges thrown up by the cyclical emergencies of drought, displacements due to inter-communal conflicts, flood and disease epidemics including the current Coronavirus pandemic, and supports communities to develop resilience to the increasing frequency of these humanitarian events.
