Kenya – Lobby groups call for postponement of reproductive health policy launch

March 23, 2022

Civil Society Groups in Nakuru have petitioned the Ministry of Health to reschedule the launch of the National Reproductive Health Policy 2022 – 2032 to allow for adequate public participation.

They indicated that though they had in November last year written to the Ministry requesting inclusion of civil society in the drafting and validation processes prior to roll-out of the draft Policy, the Ministry held validation meetings on  February 2 and 17 2022, without involving them.
