In a move to further the ongoing commitment to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030, the National Multisectoral HIV Prevention Steering Committee held a meeting in which the Technical Support Unit (TSU) and South-to-South Learning Network (SSLN) team members participated. Strategies were deliberated upon towards accelerating the achievement of the goals in the plan and discussions on the way forward were agreed upon.


Anchored on foundational documents such as the Kenya AIDS Strategic Framework (KASF), the Devolution Roadmap, and the Acceleration Plan, the meeting emphasized the urgency of action to curb the alarming rate of new HIV infections, with 22,154 new infections reported. It also underscored the importance of innovative approaches to prevention, promotion of Pre- Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), and the scale-up of male circumcision services. However, more is to be done towards equitable access to these interventions, especially among the Key Populations.


We strive to provide the strategic directions that will lead to accelerated progress toward a Kenya free of HIV infection stigma and AIDS-related deaths. The KASF II (2020/2021 – 2024/2025) targets to; reduce new HIV infections by 75%, reduce AIDS-related mortality by 50%, micro-eliminate viral hepatitis, reduce the incidence of sexually transmitted infections, reduce HIV- related stigma and discrimination to less than 25% and increase domestic financing of the HIV response to 50%. All this is paramount and requires collective action and accountability.
